The holiday edition of Recipe Box Wednesday (unearthing treausures from
an old wooden recipe box I found at a yard sale this summer) finishes up
with this dandy, that would be wonderful to have as you ring in the new
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
Boil all ingredients for 5 minutes, add 1 tsp. baking soda (mixture will foam
a bit, so make sure you use a big enough saucepan). Pour over 5 quarts of
popped corn, add 1 cup of peanuts (optional).
Butter a cookie sheet, pour corn onto it. Bake one hour at 250, stirring
I have used a similar recipe, and instead of popcorn have used Old Dutch
Puffcorn. The recipe is right on the back of the bag, and if you have never
made it you MUST. It is completely addictive, and the whole batch will be
gone before you know it.
Happy sweet crunching!
