Cooking Thursday

I've got a good recipe for this time of year. This makes a good amount, so good be given as a gift or just brought along to those parties we all have going on! It's a caramel corn recipe and it's so easy. And there's another plus - no kernels!
For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.

Best Ever Caramel Corn

2 bags Jays Corn Puffs
2 sticks butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Pour bags of corn puffs into a turkey roaster pan.
In a deep sauce pan, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and vanilla.
Bring mix to boil over medium heat. Once it begins boiling, boil for 2 minutes. (Don't over boil)
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda; the mix will become foamy.
Slowly pour half the mix over the corn puffs and stir gently. Then pour remaining mix over corn puffs and stir to coat fully.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Dump entire contents onto wax paper to cool completely. Break apart and store in airtight container.

I'm not sure what Jay's Corn Puffs are but regular popcorn sounds like it would still taste good. Thanks! I'm in love with Poppycock and this looks like it may taste just as good or better.
