Its buttery taste will hook them all in and have them begging for more!
This recipe uses white sugar instead of brown to let the taste buttery
14 cups popped popcorn 2 cups sugar (packed)
1 cup butter 1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda
Combine the sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt in a saucepan and bring
to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it begins to boil, stop stirring
for 5 minutes, or until mixture reaches 255 degrees on a candy
thermometer. (You may have to adjust according to altitude and
humidity). Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. The mixture will

popper or microwave. Once you have popped the pop-corn, remove any
un-popped kernels. Now place the popcorn in a large, buttered metal

Remove the caramel corm from the oven and allow to cool completely. Once
cool, break it into clusters, and store in a tightly covered container.
For a Halloween party, serve on on a large serving tray or in decorative
bowls. If you are having a child's party, wrap some up in treat bags.
