My late mother-in-law, Mary Bales, gave me this recipe many, many years ago but I never tied it because I didn't think I could do it justice as she did. I think it's time to bring it out!

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 5 qt
    popped yellow corn (about 1-1/4 c unpopped)
  • 2 stick
    butter
  • 2 c
    brown sugar
  • 1/2 c
    white karo syrup
  • 1 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    baking soda

How to Make MARY'S OUTSTANDING CARAMEL CORN

Step-by-Step

  1. Pop the popcorn and place on a baking sheet in a 250-degree oven to keep warm while making the syrup.
  2. In a saucepan, combine next four ingredients and cook to the "hard ball" stage. Add baking soda; stir well. Batter will foam.
  3. Pour the syrup over the warm popped corn and mix well, coating all the corn.
  4. Bake corn in a 250-degree oven for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Pour out onto waxed paper to cool. Break apart and enjoy!
  5. NOTE: Buy fresh yellow corn and keep in refrigerator or freezer prior to making. May also add Spanish peanuts to the syrup just before pouring. The secret of this caramel corn is to keep the popped corn warm while making the syrup.
