** winner of the Mirrormate $200 giveaway is here..is it you?? :) **
We *love* this recipe. I got it from my Mom and I think she got it from Grandma? (Shuz?) Anyway, on Sunday nights we would all gather out at my Grandma Lofgren’s and this would be a favorite to bring and share. My mom would bring it to the neighbors at Christmas as well. It makes a BIG batch. It’s gooey and soft, so if you love the cracker jack, crunch type of caramel corn, this probably isn’t for you. Uhhhh, as you can see, it’s not low calorie either, but it’s perfect for fall~throw in some candy corn for a fun twist! :)
Gooey Caramel Corn
Pop 4 batches of popcorn (2 cups unpopped corn, most air poppers take 1/2 cup at a time), remove unpopped kernels, and salt lightly.
Bring to boil slowly over medium heat:
1 cup light Karo syrup
2-1/3 cups brown sugar.
2 sticks of butter
1 can Eagle sweetened condensed milk (use brand name here)
When it boils, Turn down heat and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring constantly. Add a pinch of baking soda, stir and pour over popcorn. Mix all together and don’t email me when you eat the whole bowl and gain 5 pounds.
