Cooking Thursday

Are you looking for a quick and yummy treat to make for Christmas? I've got just the thing for you! This caramel corn is so easy and it's got no hulls when you eat it. I've been making it for a few years and it's always a hit!

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 just love carmel corn and I will have to try it after the holidays.
It sounds like a good snack to have for all of those bowl games coming up.
Merry Christmas dear friend.

Mari, thanks for faithfully visiting my blog. You have been such an encouragement to me... I love caramel corn but never really bothered to find out how to make it myself! Now here's one recipe I gotta try!

I also loved the wordless Wednesday picture you shared. So serene... so beautiful.

Have a blessed and meaningful Christmas!
