So I made the tastiest (most tasty?) caramel corn last night and I just thought I'd share the deliciousness with you!

1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons of Salt (I actually just dumped some in, so go for it!)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract (I didn't actually measure this one either, I like lots of vanilla.)
2 Bags of popped popcorn (It's tasty with buttery popcorn, but if you want to feel slightly more healthy about this treat, use Healthy Pop or a kind with no butter.)

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar all at once and stir until it's all dissolved into the butter. Then add the corn syrup and the salt. Stir more til the mixture is at a boil. Let it boil for a couple of minutes. Remove from heat and add in the baking soda and vanilla. Stir it really well to get all the baking soda in.
Put the first bag of popcorn into a large bowl and pour about 1/4th of the caramel over it. Stir it up and add another 1/4th of the caramel, stir more... add the other bag of popcorn to the bowl and do the same thing til all the caramel is mixed in.

Now enjoy. :)

We watched P.s. I Love You last night and ate caramel corn, it was wonderful! If any of you haven't seen P.s. I Love You, I reccomend it. The first scene is a little bit sketchy, but I'd say it's better than most now a days. It's a cute movie and if you're like me at all, you'll cry.
