I was introduced to this sweet treat from my college roommate Jennifer Parker (well now her name is Jennifer Taylor). I have no idea where she got the recipe from but it has become a quick go to snack when I need to provide something for a crowd!
1 C. Butter (you can use margarine but butter is better!)
1 1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C Karo Syrup
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
Mix butter, sugar and Karo in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Pour over 3 batches of plain popped popcorn.
I have a trusty air popper. I honestly cannot believe it is still working (It's about 25 years old). I clean my kitchen sink real good
and pop my popcorn into it.
Then I make the syrup
And pour it over the popcorn
I stir it up real good - do this kind of quickly if you can
Then I pile it into a bowl and enjoy!
This is so fast and easy it's no wonder I enjoy making this!
(and eating it also)
