Caramel Corn Crazy

Call me crazy, but this just had to be made. Lets just say popcorn had a date with some seasame sticks. Then a peanut butter sandwich cracker shook hands with some almonds. They all danced around some caramel and this happened. Yup, it really did!  

I totally encourage you to go crazy as well! 

Everything Caramel Corn
I did not really measure anything out and used seasame sticks instead of pretzel sticks...go figure.

Makes a lot of popcorn 

About  6 - 7 cups popcorn
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup or so of dry roasted almonds 
Some handfuls of seasame sticks 
Some more handfuls of peanut butter sandwich crackers

Carmel Sauce
2 sticks of butter
2 cups of brown sugar
3/4 cup of light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Pop about 1/4 cup of popcorn and then place in a bowl to cool and sprinkle with the salt. 
In a baking pan, measure out about 7 cups of the popcorn and add the almonds, sticks and crackers. 

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. 

To make the caramel sauce add the butter, sugar and corn syrup to a sacue pan on medium heat. Wisk until the butter and sugar are melted. Boil the sugar mixture for about 5 minutes. Removed it from the heat and add the baking soda. Continue to wisk. Pour the sugar mixture over the popcorn mixture and coat it all well. 

Place the pan in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, making sure to toss every 15 minutes. Once it is all done, remove from the pan and let it dry on a parchement lined sheetpan. 

Try not to eat it all at once.
