Old Dutch Caramel Corn

You can find the recipe on the back of this bag:

Make it.  You won't regret it.  It is healthy (I know this because it has the word "corn" in it.  Corn is a vegetable, therefore this recipe is good for you, and will make you smarter and prettier and awesomer).

Caramel Corn
(Recipe from Old Dutch)

- 1 cup butter (not margarine)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 bag popcorn twists (175 g)

Put the twists into a large roaster.

In a saucepan cook the butter, sugar and syrup for 2 minutes.  

Remove from heat and add the baking soda.  


Allow to cool slightly, then pour over twists.  Cover and bake at 250 F for 45 minutes (stirring every 15).
Remove and pour onto wax paper or a glass cutting board to cool.


Try to eat just one piece.  I dare you.

Yes, this is health food to the power to twenty! Gahh want me some! Everyone like my "biscuit" doughnuts. I just buy those pilsbury frozen biscuits, make a hole with a bottle cap, and fry em. then I like to toss it in powdered sugar and cinnamon. Ok, I need to stop cause I'm drooling....

My daughter came over one night and brought a bag of these
*Old Dutch Popcorn Twists*
And I have been addicted since!
I have seen the recipe for the *Old Dutch Caramel Corn*
I have never had it before or made. Is it a sticky yucky messy thing to make, and is it a really sweet & sticky treat?
Please let me know! Thanks!

It is not messy to make at all. Use a roaster. Stir every 15 minutes when in the oven (I like to use a wooden spoon). Once done pour out on to parchment or waxed paper to cool, then break it up and eat! It it is quite sweet, and just a little bit sticky, but totally addictive! You've got to try it!
