  • Really Good Caramel Popcorn by lovemykids

    Caramel Corn Snack Mix

    8 cups popped popcorn
    4 cups crispy rice cereal squares
    2 cups small pretzel twists
    1 cup pecan halves
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter
    1/4 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
    In a large bowl, combine the popcorn, cereal, pretzels and pecans.
    In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low; cook without stirring for 5 minutes.
    Remove saucepan from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over popcorn mixture and toss until evenly coated.
    Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees F) for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Transfer to large piece of parchment paper and cool completely. Break into chunks once cool.
    I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
