This is from my recipe collection. I got this recipe from a friend in the early 1980s. It is hand written on a piece of paper – but no cook’s name. We were in a card club and someone brought this one night. One great thing about this recipe is you don’t have to worry about ‘old maids’. The recipe calls for pre-popped popcorn such as Old Mill or Kelly’s. This caramel corn just melts in your mouth and can be hard to walk away from!
2 sticks margarine
1 c brown sugar
½ c corn syrup (white)
Mix and boil for 2 minutes
Add 1 teaspoon soda. Will be fluffy.
Pour over 2 pkgs. popcorn that really isn’t popcorn (Old Mill or Kelly’s) in metal pan or roaster.
Bake at 250° for 50 minutes, stirring every ten minutes.
