Erin's Caramel Delight

My sister in law showed up to the big family Christmas gathering this year with a bag of this ADDICTIVE and AMAZING candy in tow. Yum, yum, yum. You've been warned: you will not be able to stop with just one bite. Don't say I didn't warn you. Don't blame me for your extra five pounds :-). Unfortunately, I have all the ingredients save the Puffcorn on hand... hmm.... maybe I'll restart Weight Watchers NEXT week.... (in case you don't know, Puffcorn looks like cheese puffs minus the cheese--same long, puffy shape.)

  • 1 bag butter flavored Puffcorn
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup lite corn syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until melted. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda.  Place puffcorn in large roasting pan (such as an aluminum turkey roaster); pour sugar mixture over puffcorn and stir to coat.  Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes. After baking, cool on waxed paper, separating candies as much as possible.
