Make up a batch of Baked Caramel Corn for the family to munch on. It would be good to serve at a party for the upcoming Halloween holiday or treats for the little goblins.
3 quarts popped corn
2 sticks oleo
2 cups brown sugar
½ cup white syrup
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
Melt oleo; add sugar and syrup to 265 degree.
Take from heat; add cream of tartar and soda.
Stir into popcorn mixing well.
Place popcorn mixture on a large cookie sheet.
Bake in oven at 200 degree or lower for one hour.
Stir often to get syrup spread well through popcorn.
If desired, put peanuts or pecans in mixture.
