CARAMEL CORN

It's time for the State Fair. And one of my favorite treats is the Caramel Corn. So I thought it would be fun to have it at home any time. But it's addictive, once you start eating it, it's so hard to stop!  Enjoy!

2 Cups brown sugar
2 sticks of margarine
1/2 Cup corn syrup
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
15 Cups of popped corn

Boil the first 4 ingredients together for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1 t. baking soda. Mix quickly. Pour hot mixture over the popped corn in a large stainless steel mixing bowl. Mix well and bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. When cool, store in airtight container.
(if you do not have a large stainless steel mixing bowl, you can use a large ceramic bowl but use a butter spray to help keep the popcorn from sticking)
