Homemade Caramel Corn

It's been sooooo long since I posted a recipe! 
I've been making a list in my mind of all that I want to post, and with the kiddos starting school on Monday I'm hoping I can make posting part of my routine again. 

Here is a simple recipe for caramel corn I found.  It is sooooo delicious and very easy to do.

Homemade Caramel Corn
adapted from thehappyhousewife

12 cups air popped popcorn
1 stick butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 TB corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
non-stick spray

*Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

*Line two rimmed cookie sheets with foil and coat with non-stick spray.

*Place your popcorn in a large bowl.

*Melt the butter on the stove top.  Add the brown sugar and corn syrup.  Stir until the mixture come to a boil.  Stop stirring and let boil for 5 minutes.

*Remove from heat and mix in the vanilla and baking soda.

*Pour over the popcorn and mix thoroughly so the popcorn is well coated. 
     HINT: coat two rubber spatulas with non-stick spray, it will be much easier to mix.

*Divide between the two cookie sheets and place in the oven.

*Bake for 30 - 40 minutes, rotating pans every 10 minutes.  If the caramel corn is not cooked long enough it will be chewy and it needs to be crunchy.  If the popcorn is chewy after it has been cooled, you can put it back in the oven to crisp up.

*Remove from oven, cool, and enjoy!
