The corn pops in the recipe are not the corn pop cereal. They are in the chip section at the store. I have never seen the Better Made brand here (the recipe came from the back of the Better Made bag). I used the Frito Lay Chester"s Puff Corn and got it at Kroger. It is the one that says "butter flavored". Kroger has a store brand one also. (These alternate products were recommended by others that had used the recipe.)
Better Made Caramel Corn
One 8 oz bag of Puff Corn Pops (not the cereal) (Chester's brand is 4 oz, so half the sauce or use 2 bags)
Place in a large roaster pan (I lined with foil for easy clean up)
In 2 qt. saucepan cook together for 2 minutes:
1/2 lb. butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
Remove from heat and add 1 tsp. baking soda to mixture. This will cause mixture to foam, so 2 qt. pan is necessary.
Pour caramel mixture over pops and stir until mixed.Place in 250 degree oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 mins. Remove from oven . Pour onto waxed paper and break apart. Enjoy!! This is great for Christmas gifts. Find some cute bags/containers and fill them with this easy treat.
