Okay I found one more picture of things that I made for Christmas, so I had to share with you guys. This was so fast and easy to do, and I have to say this caramel popcorn is absolutely to die for. I made two huge roasting pan batches in my oven and was so surprised that it only made about 3.5 large bags of finished product. We gave 3 bags to the neighbors and ate the half bag in no time at all! This kicks the tail of any tinned popcorn I have ever eaten! Next time I will make a double or triple batch so I can share the love.
Here’s what the finished product looked like:
the tag has that great saying from sweet season, “gingerbread and sugared things, enjoy the sweets the season brings”

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (95 degrees C). Place popcorn in a very large bowl.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.
