I promised everybody at the Blog Party that I'd share the recipe for the Caramel Corn that almost was—
1/4 cup pancake syrup
1 stick butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
dash of salt
Cook in microwave-safe container on High for TWO minutes (glass is best). Stir. Cook on High for approximately 4 minutes—until mixture has boiled for 2 minutes.
Add 1/2 teaspoom baking soda. Stir until foamy.
Immediately, pour over 4 quarts (16 cups) of popped popcorn in a paper grocery bag. Close bag and shake vigorously. Pour onto waxed paper or cookie sheet to cool. Guard vigilantly!
