How to cook
Gather and portion ingredients.
Set oven to 250 °F
Pop popcorn kernels in your preferred method. I like to use an air popper and pop the popcorn in a grocery bag, since I don't have a bowl quite that big.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan.
Add the brown sugar, salt, and corn syrup to the pot with the melted butter.
Bring the sugar and butter to a boil and boil for about 5 minutes or until it thickens slightly and starts to bind together.
Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and baking soda.
Grease two large baking pans and fill with popcorn. Pour caramel over the top of the popcorn and stir until mostly coated.
Bake for an hour stirring every 15 minutes.
