This is my first time making caramel corn so I was a little scared...but after reading all the comments I ended up using 1 cup of unpopped corn and then I added 5 more servings of the sauce which comes out to: 1-1/3 cp brown sugar 2/3 cp butter 1/3 cp corn syrup 3/4 tsp salt 2 t/s baking soda The recipe turned out awesome! I'll definately make this again soon!

Oaky but I like my recipe better but till quite good. I had to make 3 batches of caramel to coat all the popcorn, (that's why only 3 stars) I also turned the oven up to 300F this seemed to keep the caramel softer so it coated the popcorn better when stired. My recipe has more corn syrup and is just brought to the boil and no baking soda. My daughter works in a popcprn making store and says they too use baking soda but I don't care for how it make the caramel thicken up so fast, I found thios harder to work with. I will make again I likedthe crunch and the family gobbled it all down right to the last kernel. I daught liked it too!

This is a quick and easy way to make GREAT Carmel Corn. If you use one bag of Microwave Popcorn this is just the right about of carmel, with a little left over to like the bowl. I like the way the baking soda makes it nice a fluffy, YUM YUM

I lost my recipe that I have been making for years and this one is it - with the exception that I believe (as Izzy said) this is too much baking soda. I believe it should be 1/2 TEAspoon, not tablespoon.

right on the money followed it all the way with the exception on the oven temp 200 degrees was not hot enough so i put it on 300 and it was fine. just keep an eye on it and mix it very well and it will coat all the popcorn. nice job rosemary will be using this at christmas time thank you!

It is so good I wish I had never made it! Now all the kids expect it for all occasions! My daughter had me bring it to her house, 4 states away, for Thanksgiving so her Marine husband and his friends have something to munch for ball games.

Excellent!, I did triple the caramel sauce for the amount of popcorn.Had complete coverage of the popcorn. I did not have the problems most of the reviews suggested. Superb taste. Great crunch. Exactly the reciepe I was looking for. Will add to my favorites.

I agreed with many reviews about not enough caramel. I added pecans and doubled the sauce, which was perfect. I also baked it in my roasting pan so that I could turn the popcorn without it spilling all over the oven. Lastly, I did bake at 300. Yummy, great to put in a tin and give as a little gift.
