Caramel Popcorn

1/3 cup and 1 tablespoon butter
3/4 cup and 2 teaspoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 cups popped popcorn

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl.
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. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into pieces.

We call this FHE Popcorn, but its pretty easy to make and it is sooooo good!

I have made this before but instead of pans in the oven, we put everything in a large brown paper sack like you get from the grocery store. As long as the bag is on a pan and you keep an eye on it, it should be fine just don't let the paper touch the heating element.
Done in the bag, there is less mess and cleanup.
