Recipe by Jacque_CS
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Spray a large roasting pan very well with oil and set aside.
  • In a large pan combine butter and Karo; add brown sugar when butter has melted. Stir well and bring to a boil. Once boiling starts set timer to 10 minutes.
  • Pop all 5 bags of popcorn (I use lite) and pour into a very large bowl sprayed with oil ( I use a small deep tote).
  • When sugar mixture is ready remove from heat and add vanilla, mix well then add soda and mix well.
  • Pour mixture over popcorn and mix very well with a large wooden spoon (mixture will be very hot so be careful not to get on hands). Pour popcorn into the roasting pan and bake at 250°F for one hour.
  • Pour cooked popcorn back into the deep tote and break up carefully with the wooden spoon. Continue to break up with the wooden spoon as the corn cools keep in a large sealed baggie.
