2 large bowls popcorn, popped (Pop the popcorn first and put it in the bowls so that you can pour the caramel over as soon as it is done.)
Boil to a soft ball stage:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
1 cup half & half
1 cup butter
*If using unsalted popcorn, put a pinch of salt into the caramel at the end.
Instructions: Put all the ingredients into a pot and boil over medium- high heat, stirring constantly. When it starts to bubble and thicken and turn a caramel color, just start testing it. To test caramel, drop a drop of caramel in ice water until it is at the soft ball stage. (Soft ball stage is when it is soft but has the texture you would want in the popcorn, soft and chewy, but not runny or grainy) Keep testing often because it goes from undone to done to overdone FAST! When caramel is ready pour immediately over popcorn. Enjoy!
