Excuse the blurrs!  It was a busy day!

Caramel Corn

Preheat oven to 200°F.

Place the popped corn in a roaster. 

In a pan, add brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and butter.  Place on medium heat.  Bring to a boil.  Once it is at a boil, boil 5 minutes (do not stir).

    This looks fantastic! I am horrible in a kitchen (can we say ruining instant macaroni, anyone?) but I might have to try this one out!
