  • Kearna, yours looked much prettier than that image on this post. I am going to change it if I can get a decent photo. 🙂

  • We air popped the corn, and then used Paula Deen’s grandmothers recipe. It uses: 1 cup of Butter, 2 cups of Packed Brown Sugar, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup light Corn Syrup, and 1 tsp Baking Soda.
    Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
    In a large sauce pan, combine 1st 4 ingredients, and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in the Baking soda( will foam up). Stir well. Pour over 8 quarts of popped corn. Stir to coat well. Place coated popcorn in 2 large jelly roll pans, or a large roaster. place in preheated oven, and stir every 15 minutes for an hour.

    I added about 1 tsp of ground cinnamon to the caramel mixture. You could also drizzle the melted chocolate on this after it’s baked. Allow to dry, and store in an airtight container or large ziplog bags. Enjoy.
