I like to make this before I settle down on the couch with my sweetie to watch House. I have no clue where the recipe originally came from.
2 bags microwave popcorn
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. white corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 c. butter
In medium saucepan, mix together condensed milk, corn syrup, brown sugar, vanilla and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches “soft ball” stage. This usually takes between 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, pop microwave popcorn and pour into large bowl. Sift our unpopped kernels. Pour hot caramel over popcorn and stir until well-coated.
