This is my all time favorite caramel popcorn.  I use air popped corn which makes it lighter and fluffier.  You can add anything that you want to it.  I have used peanuts, coconut, pretzels, walnuts, etc. If you want to add chocolate pieces, add after the baking period.
Carmel Popcorn


1 cup butter -I use unsalted
2  cups brown sugar -I use dark brown sugar
1/2  cup corn syrup -white
1  teaspoon salt-I don't usually add the salt if I'm adding pretzels or salted nuts.
1/2   teaspoon baking soda
1  teaspoon vanilla bean paste or to taste
5  quarts popped  popcorn

Nuts, or add in's like: pretzels,  etc.


1.   Preheat  oven to 275 degrees. Place popcorn in  a very large baking pan.

2.   In  a medium  saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in  brown sugar, corn  syrup
and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil  without stirring 4  minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla bean paste. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.

3.   Bake in preheated  oven, stirring every  15 minutes, for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool completely before  breaking into pieces
