Directions

Place the popped popcorn into a large bowl and set aside. 

Preheat the oven to 250*.  Combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a large saucepan on low-med heat.  Bring the mixture to a boil only stirring enough to blend through.  Boil for five minutes or until it reaches 116*F on a candy thermometer (soft ball stage). 

Remove from the heat and add the baking soda and vanilla.  It will lighten in color and become foamy.  Immediately pour over your popcorn and mix through.  Transfer to baking sheets and place in the oven.

Bake for one hour, mixing it every 15 minutes.  Line your counter top with parchment paper or wax paper and dump the caramel corn onto it in an even layer.  Allow to cool completely before you break it apart.

Store your caramel corn in a airtight container.
