Finger Lickin’ Good.

For the love of all things delicious and thanksgiving, this recipe will change your life.
 {and your waist size}

I made this last night at dark thirty and realized at the last minute that  I didn’t have baking soda.
No worries…
I went next door in my pajamas and borrowed a teaspoon from my neighbor.
I’m reminded why I don’t keep junk food at my house.
Everyone else in the family can stop at a handful.
Not me.
I’ve eaten this stuff ’til I think I might literally blow up.
Somebody stop me!!!!
Misery loves company, so I’m giving you the recipe.
If I’m going down in a blaze of thick waisted glory, so are you!
Homemade Caramel Popcorn::
I popped two batches of popcorn on the stovetop, the old fashioned way.
I used 1/2 cup kernels in each batch.
When it finished popping, I put each batch in two of those silver foiled casserole trays.
Here comes the yummy, not good for you at all, part.
In a pan on the stove top, you need to melt
2 sticks of butter.
Then, add 2 cups of brown sugar and 
1/2 cup light Karo Syrup.
Bring all of this to a boil and stir constantly for three minutes.
Bring it off the heat and add 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of baking soda.
Don’t worry when it starts to fizz and change consistency.
The baking soda will have a chemical reaction.
Oh, let’s call this a “science experiment” so we feel better about it.
perfect…I feel better already.
Now, you pour that yummy, buttery mixture evenly over the popcorn in the two trays.
Bake at 250 degrees for one hour.
HERE’S THE TRICK.
Turn the popcorn every fifteen minutes for the hour that you bake it.
It assures that every single last piece of popcorn is covered in the caramel.
