A Valentine Treat for the Whole Class!


When Patti Guthrie, our Customer Service Manager, used to bring treats to her children's classroom on Valentine's Day, this was their all-time favorite.

Golden Baked Caramel Popcorn
Fills at least two cookie sheets

5 qts popped popcorn (set aside)

Cook to firm ball stage:
1 cup real butter
2 cups brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
1 tsp salt

Then add ½ tsp baking soda (this makes it foam a bit).

Mix in with popcorn and place on shallow, buttered cookie sheets. Bake at 225 degrees for 45-50 minutes. It's yummy with pecan halves and almonds. Just toss them with the popcorn; then add the caramel mixture. Fills at least two cookie sheets.

For Valentine's Day parties, Patti would wrap handfuls of the popcorn in rose-colored plastic wrap and use ribbons to tie the individual bundles.
