How to Make Connie's Caramel Corn
- Bring sugar, butter, Karo, and salt to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
- Add soda and pour mixture over popped corn. The mixture will bubble up and become foamy when you add the soda. Just stir while it's foaming.
- Bake at 200 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
- The recipe that Connie gave me didn't call for nuts, but I usually add a handful or two of mixed nuts to the popped corn before pouring the sugar mixture over it. It's delicious without nuts, but with nuts it's even yummier!
