Fall is here! And with cooler temps I feel like staying in the kitchen rather than just passing through to somewhere cooler. Here is what I am baking this afternoon:
- 15 cups popped popcorn (3 bags microwave popcorn)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup margarine or butter
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t baking soda
Place popped corn into 2 13″x9″ baking pans, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
In 2-qt saucepan heat margarine, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbly. Continue cooking 5 min without stirring, remove from heat. Stir in baking soda until foamy.
Pour sugar mixture over popcorn, toss until evenly coated. Bake 1 hr, 200 degrees, stirring every 20 minutes.
Alternatives: decrease popcorn and add your favorite nuts or dried fruits.
