    I scaled this back to 12 cups though next time I wouldn't reduce the amount for the caramel sauce as it was hard to cover all the popcorn thoroughly. I assumed the temperature was 250F, so I baked the caramel corn at 120C fan forced. Sent with the DS to his music recreation group and they thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you BothFex, made for ZAAR Cookbook Tag game.

    I made this yesterday and it turned out very good! Tastes like cracker jack :) The directions were vague so I combined the sugar, butter, corn syrup and brought to boiling then boiled for 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and baking soda (watch out for foaming) and then coated my popcorn. Seven qts of popcorn is about 28 cups according to my kitchen calculator. I'll be making this again closer to Halloween ~ it didn't even last the whole day ~ everyone loved it!

    This is my recipe too! I wanted to eliminate the corn syrup so I used 1/3 cup of blue agave nectar. It did what the corn syrup does but without the high fructose sweetening.
