8 cups popped popcorn (I use microwave)
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter ( not margarine)
1/2 cup light corn syrup (Karo)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup peanuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
In a saucepan heat butter, sugar, corn syrupand salt.
Stir occassionally, when mixture comes to a full boil, cook for 5 minutes (stirring constantly to keep from burning) Remove from heat and
stir in baking soda.
Pour caramel over popcorn and mix until evenly coated.
Bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.
