I wish that I could say that this is the perfect movie snack but to do so would be limiting it. This became my walking-through-the-kitchen snack and my driving-to-Colorado-Springs snack and my sitting-around-at-work snack.It's sweet and crunchy, just barely salty and overall pretty perfect. I added pepitas because I had them on hand but really anything that would taste good covered in caramel will work too.
15 cups popped popcorn and any other treats to be covered with caramel
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt1/2 tsp baking soda
1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. In a saucepan, mix together the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, and salt and then heat over medium heat. Continue heating, stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes bubbly around the edges. Cook for five more minutes then remove from heat and stir in baking soda until foamy.
2. Put the popped popcorn in a large bowl and pour caramel sauce over it. Mix well until coated. Divide the popcorn on two ungreased cookie sheets and then bake for an hour.
