Popcorn Favs

(I know - two posts in one night!)
For our YW activity tonight we had a movie night. We watched FOREVER STRONG (highly recommend) and had popcorn. I made these two kinds. The Peanut Butter was the fav.
1/2 c. butter - melt in microwave
1/4 c. Karo syrup
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Cook 2 -1/2 minutes in microwave then add:
1/2 tsp. soda - Stir well
Pop 4 qts. popcorn. Put in brown paper bag (sprayed with Pam). Pour over popcorn. Stir. (Cut off bag to fit in microwave). Cook 2 1/2 minutes - stirring after 1 minute.
Pour out onto cookie sheet to cool.

Caramel on the left - Peanut Butter on the right

1 c. Karo
1 c. Sugar
Remove from heat and add:
1 c. peanut butter - Stir until mixed together.
Pour over big bowl of popcorn.

CANDIED POPCORN (Grandma's Popcorn Ball Recipe)
(This is Mark's favorite)
5 qts. pop corn
Boil together until softball stage or light tan color (I just guess!)
1 1/3 c. sugar
1 c. margarine
1/2 c. Karo
Remove from heat - add:
Add 1 tsp. Cherry flavoring and Red food coloring
Pour over popcorn.
(I never make popcorn balls - just eat it!)
