I'm writing another review b/c we made this again this year and found the carmel corn to be stale, soft and chewy after cooling. We found another recipe online that mentioned baking @ 200F for an hour, mixing every 15 minutes an then cooling on baking racks. The corn crisped right up and is perfect!

I have been making this recipe since the early 70's... my recipe called for the addition of tsp of vanilla to be added with the soda.... I have over the years, learned to spray the inside of my paper bags with cooking spray... I also do not lay out on a cookie sheet to dry/cool... I just cut the bag open,.... & spread out the corn to dry/cool then pack up in an air tight container

I was in the mood for some quick microwave popcorn, and this fit the bill perfectly! I made a couple of minor changes insofar as I didn't make it in the bag...I mixed the caramel sauce and the popcorn in a large stainless steel bowl, then divided it out and microwaved it in a glass (heatproof) bowl for two and a half minutes per batch, stirring 3 times during the cooking. Due to the size of the bowl, I had to divide it into approximately four batches. It took a little longer that way, but it still turned out fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! ;)

Thank You!! I had lost this recipe which had come with our original microwave in the 70's. I knew the ingredients but didn't know the amounts. I going to whip up a big batch this afternoon. My mouth is already watering. I don't use a bag, however. I just pour it over the popcorn in a large bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals ,tossing the corn until it's well coated.

I really love this stuff! I have a 1350w microwave and, although I leave the cooking time for the syrup the same, I reduce the time in the bag to an initial 30 sec., then 45sec,and a final 45 sec. Substituting molasses for the corn syrup results in Cracker Jack heaven.

Fantastic recipe, and a word of caution not to leave the bag unattended in the microwave as it COULD catch fire...

If you have never made this and you like caramel corn, you must try it. It is delicious. I have made this recipe for years. I increase the corn syrup to 1/2 cup. It is buttery and sweet and sooo good. Best of all you throw the bag away and the clean-up is a snap.
