Gooey Vanilla Caramel Corn

Ingredients
  • ½ stick butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1 cup light Karo Syrup
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk (10 oz.)
  • 1 teaspoon good pure Vanilla
  • 4 to 5 quarts popped popcorn (2.5-3 bags microwave popcorn)
Instructions
  1. Combine butter, sugar, Karo syrup in saucepan over medium heat and stir well. Keep stirring over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. When mixture comes to a slow boil, add your condensed milk – keep stirring. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a soft ball stage and test with a candy thermometer (*234-238 degrees). Stir in vanilla,pour over popcorn. Stir to coat.
  2. *If you don’t have a candy thermometer to test the soft ball stage, you can test it in ice water by dripping some caramel from a spoon into ice water and once you can form a ball the Carmel is done.
  3. This batch treats my family of 6 plus some extra to give to friends
