Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly spray 15x10-inch shallow baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. Spray large bowl with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Prepare popcorn according to package directions. Remove all unpopped kernels. Place popped corn in bowl.
  3. Place Fleischmann's, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until Fleischmann's melts, stirring well to combine. Cook WITHOUT STIRRING until candy thermometer reaches soft ball stage (235 to 240°F), about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove brown sugar mixture from heat. Stir in baking soda until well blended. Quickly drizzle caramel over popped corn. Using two spatulas, carefully toss to coat evenly. Spread in single layer in pan.
  5. Bake 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to distribute caramel evenly. Remove from oven and stir again. Cool completely on waxed paper. Serve or store in tightly sealed container.

Cook's Tip

To remove unpopped kernels easily, place popped corn in large bowl. Gently lift and transfer popped corn to another bowl with one's hands. Add a handful of your favorite nuts to this recipe. If making a larger batch, place caramel coated popcorn in large aluminum roaster for easier stirring while baking.
