  1. Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Shake and toss the bowl to make the unpopped kernels go to the bottom; discard.
  2. In a sauce pan over medium-high heat, cook the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter, stirring constantly. Heat to 270 to 290 degrees F (132 to 143 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard but pliable threads. Remove from the heat, and carefully pour in the can of condensed milk; stir until smooth.
  3. Pour 1/4 of the caramel at a time over the popcorn, stirring until all of the popcorn is covered. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

When I cook I don't follow the ingredients exactly. In this recipe I cooked the popcorn on the stove, and more than the recipe called for, then salted it. I added the caramel to small amounts of...

I have tried all sorts of recipes for caramel corn lately. My mom made soft caramel corn when I was younger, but it requires golden syrup I cannot buy around here. I really do not like crunchy...

This was great. My family loved it. I added vanilla and cinnamon for flavor. I also used fat free condensed milk.

My husband and I are enjoying a "snow day" today and I decided to make this recipe. It is WONDERFUL! It was extremely easy to make and is a decadent treat to enjoy on a cold day. I did Halve the...

Everybody loved this, however I only had to heat my caramel to 205 degrees, also I added vanilla extract after removing it from the heat.

I made this using only half the amount called for of the caramel ingredients, and added 2 tsp vanilla when I added the condensed milk. It came out perfect! If I had added as much caramel as th...
