A very traditional Christmas treat, and if you don't already make this, you are missing out. This is addicting and something you can't help but reach your hand in the bowl and take a few each time you pass by. I am very thankful as my mom took the pictures and made this, as I hurried off to Christmas Eve mass, so thanks mom!
Brown sugar, Butter, White corn syrup, popcorn and salt, and missing from the picture, baking soda. That seems simple enough. My mom has a nice air popper she used to pop all the popcorn in. You need a total of 6 quarts of popcorn. Prepare your bag, you will need a brown grocery bag, and cut the top off, leaving about 8 inches at the bottom. Spray the brown bag with cooking spray. Place all the popped pop corn in the bag.
Combine the brown sugar, butter, white corn syrup, and salt. Cook in microwave on full power for 2 minutes. Stir, and cook on full power for 2 more minutes. Add 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and stir. Pour hot syrup over popcorn.
This is a nice holiday treat, but I don't think that would stop me from making it any time of the year!
