Caramel Corn with Puffed Corn

I was planning on making some caramel corn for a church function when my pastor's wife told me about this recipe.  She gave me a copy from a cookbook and so I made it and my husband could not stop eating it.  It seemed to be a hit and fairly easy to do.  You can also find a recipe from here.  It is great for a crowd if you double it.

  • 1 (8 ounce) bag corn puffs

  • 6 tablespoons butter (no substitutions)

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

    1. Place corn puffs in a large roasting pan.  
    2. Cook together butter, brown sugar, corn syrup for two minutes, stirring constantly.
    3. Add baking soda to the mix.
    4. This will cause the mixture to foam so make sure you use a 2 quart saucepan.
    5. Pour caramel mixture over corn puffs and stir until mixed.
    6. Place in a 250 degree oven for 45 minutes.
    7. Stir at least every 10-15 minutes.
    8. Remove from oven and pour on wax paper and break apart.
    9. Enjoy!
