Recipe - Peanut Caramel Popcorn

I've been a fan of Cracker Jack since childhood, so I decided to try a batch of this homemade version this week. It turned out quite nicely and paired very well with a glass of apple cider! 


1 cup margarine
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light or dark corn syrup
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
6 qts. popped corn
1/2 to 1 cup peanuts 

Melt margarine in a large saucepan. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda and vanilla. Gradually pour over popped corn and peanuts. Mix until coated. Makes 6 quarts.

After mixing spread mixture out on cookie sheets and break up before storing in an airtight container. 

Until next time...
