MOM'S CARAMEL CORN & LET'S TALK

Whoop Whoop, ready for inspiration inside the kitchen galore with this month's recipe sharing theme for Let's Talk with Momfessionals Andrea and Erika! Not only do I have "The" recipe for the delicious caramel corn that my sweet mama so graciously decided to share with you little pretties but also a couple requested memorable recipes on 
this all fine Fall Day!!!! 
Yum  


A week ago Friday, in my Friday Favorites, I told you how it is tradition that every year my mom makes her fantabulous caramel corn and I hoard and hide it as to indulge in it all my myself. She makes it in fairly small batches and that is what makes it so fresh, crisp and never sticky. Kids, I have been known to eat the whole container full in one setting. Husband caught onto me this year...sorry babe.


 When I see this container in the Fall, I know what is inside!!!!!

Ya know, that is what I love about recipes, especially in the Fall and Cold months, there is just so much darn love that goes into them and I feel it makes them extra good.

So besides having the honor of sharing Mom's Caramel Corn Recipe with you today, I'll share a couple more from posts past that have sweet sentimental meaning behind them. They are also two that would work stupendously for your Thanksgiving get togethers coming up in gasp...3 1/2 weeks!! 


What you'll need for the Caramel Corn

MOM'S CARAMEL CORN
INGREDIENTS
3 1/2 quart (14 cups) unsalted popped corn
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1 stick butter
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Combine the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the baking soda and the vanilla. Stir until very foamy. Put the popcorn that has been popped in a roaster or very large pan. Pour the syrup mixture over the popcorn and stir until coated. Bake for 45 minutes total, stirring well after every 15 minutes. Dump onto waxed or parchment paper to cool. Store in an airtight container. 


How Cute in my new Fall Mug!!!

  47. Your mom's caramel corn recipe is the same as my mom's. We love the stuff. I haven't made it in years -- think it might be time to dust off the recipe and get out my roaster (the only pan I have that's big enough to bake it in). :)
