Cooking Thursday

I've posted this recipe before, but it's been a few years. It's a favorite at Christmas so I thought I would share it again, so my newer readers would see it. This is the best caramel corn ever! It's so easy to make, and I love it because there are no hard kernels or hulls in it. Try it yourself - I know you'll agree!

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 familiar with Jay's Corn Puffs. Is is a cereal or a salty snack? I hope we have something similar, because this does sound good!!

It looks delicious. Like some others, I don't think I've seen the corn puffs before but I think they may have something similar at Trader Joe's, so I will have a look next time. Thanks for the recipe.

Haha, I thought they were potatoes, and I thought, "oh, good, she has a recipe for potatoes".... oh well, maybe I should make corn instead :)

Have a great Christmas!
