{ caramel corn }

Today I made a quick and dirty dessert.  I was busy all day at work and luckily had leftovers planned for dinner…but I wanted something sweet.

I took this recipe from the internet (it was literally everywhere, so I can’t accurately reference it), but did it the lazy way and it turned out fine.
Great, even, but my standards right now are low.

1 cup butter, 2 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup golden corn syrup, heated on med-low (stirring constantly).  Turn to medium heat for about five minutes, watch but don’t necessarily stir unless it looks like it’s starting to burn/smoke.

2-3 bags of buttered microwave popcorn, popped and spread in a few cake pans.

Take caramel mix off heat, stir 1/2 tsp baking soda in.  It may or may not foam.  Mine didn’t.

Pour the caramel over the popcorn, mix it up.

Pop in the oven, turn the oven on to 250(f), wait about 10 minutes, pop out of the oven and pour into a big bowl.  Make sure to use a spatula to get all of the caramel out of the pan!

You can wait to eat it, but we didn’t.  Hot, sticky good.

Makes one giant serving of one million calories.
