Pecan Pretzel Caramel Corn
An easy caramel corn recipe with candied pretzels and pecans.
I popped mine in a brown bag in the microwave
broken into chunks
cut into chunks, softened
packed dark brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. and grease a large roasting pan.
Put the popcorn, pecans and pretzels in the roasting pan.
Combine the softened butter, both sugars, salt and corn syrup in a 2 quart saucepan and bring to a steady boil. Allow the mixture to boil for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in the soda and vanilla. Pour the mixture evenly over the popcorn mixture and stir to coat.
Bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Let the corn cool completely (it will crisp as it cools)
I started with 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla, but I suspect some of it evaporates when you pour into the boiling mixture because there was better flavor when I used a full 1/2 teaspoon.
