This is by far the easiest and bestest carmel corn ever from my Aunt.
• 6-8 quarts (2-3 bags) plain popcorn
• 2 cups brown sugar
• 1 cup white karo syrup
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
• 1/8 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
First, pop the popcorn. Combine the sugar, syrup, butter, and salt and bring to a boil (stirring constantly) and then remove from the stove top and add the baking soda. It will froth up a bit. Pour immediatley over the popped corn and eat it with a movie. (Note: I always double the sauce - it's just silly not to).
