Easy Caramel Popcorn

Forget rock-hard caramel popcorn that you have to cook with a candy thermometer. This simple recipe is easy and the popcorn is gooey, soft and indulgent. I make it often for my kids when they have friends over. We eat it in small bowls with spoons and big glasses of milk!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup popcorn kernels, air-popped*

*Remove any un-popped kernels and place popped corn into a big bowl. Mix butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until boiling. Stir and cook at a gentle boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour over plain air-popped popcorn and mix well. Serves about 6.

I made this for a game night with a couple of other couples. It was a hit. I didn't even get a chance to eat any because it was all gone so fast!!
