Homemade Toffee Popcorn
1 stick butter or margarine
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup Karo syrup
popcorn kernels, unpopped
Pop about 3/4 cup popcorn using air popper (or microwavable is fine too!).
Combine sugar, butter, and Karo in medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and cook until soft ball stage.
Pour over popcorn and stir immediately until all popcorn is evenly coated.
Comments from the cook: More of my Kryptonite! My mom made this for us on Sunday nights when we were kids, and we gobbled it up. It's excellent when served warm, and is even really good the next day (if it lasts that long!). Original recipe is twice this much, and makes 2 large bowls full.
