Caramel Corn

I think that by the time I finish typing this recipe out, I will feel compelled to rush to the kitchen to make it again! (It has been a week.)
8 cups of popped popcorn (I do it old school, not microwave)
4 cups of rice Chex cereal (trust me...yummy)
2 cups of small pretzels
(1 cup of in I rarely add)

Mix these things together in a large baking dish (as in bigger than a 9x13...or use 2 9x13)

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine/butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
Cook these 3 things on the stove until boiling, then reduce heat and cook 5 minutes,without stirring. Remove pan from the heat and add...

1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pour this mixture over dry ingredients, while mixing (coverage will not look complete, so that is okay...sorry but I forgot to take any more photos at this know, where they would've been helpful.) Bake for 30 minutes at 350, stirring after every ten minutes. Pour out onto to cookie sheets and break apart while cooling/sampling! Store in an airtight container once cool.


  1. I'm totally old-school on popcorn, too. With peanut oil. Or coconut oil. Have you tried those? Adds a whole 'nother dimension. Must make this for my boys as a surprise. They will go NUTSO for it. Thanks for recipe!

    1. Interesting idea to switch up the oil! I love Trader Joe's olive oil popcorn. Enjoy!
