I tried this and everyone loved it and I've done it several times now. I used plain yellow popcorn kernels and popped them in a paper bag in the microwave. Just one layer on the bottom of the bag for 2 and a half minutes until I had enough to fill 2 foil pans.
For the caramel make sure when you measure, you pack the brown sugar in so you actually get 2 cups. And it's important to use medium heat, you don't want to bring it to the boil too quickly and you must stir constantly. Leave it alone on a low boil for the 4 minutes and don't forget to remove it from the heat before you add the baking soda and vanilla.
We don't like it too sweet so I only add just enough caramel to coat but not completely drown the corn. I also only stir it once at 15 minutes and then take it out 15 minutes after that and stir it once more and let it cool. Once, I didn't have enough time and it was in the oven for only 15 minutes and I turned let it cool and it was fine.
