  1. Make it yourself…

    Caramel Crack
    • 6 quarts popped popcorn
    • 1 cup butter
    • 2 cups firmly packed brown (or maple) sugar
    • ½ cup corn syrup, (either light or dark will do)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 jigger dark rum*
    • (optional pumpkin spice** to taste)
    Preheat oven to 250°. Oil or spray a large roasting pan with vegetable cooking spray, regular or butter-flavored. Pour popcorn into the pan. In a heavy pan, slowly melt butter; stir in the brown syrup, corn syrup, and salt (and spices, if desired). Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda, vanilla and rum. Gradually pour the syrup over popcorn, stirring to blend well. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool completely and beak apart.

    * I suppose Buttershots schnapps, brandy or whiskey would work s well.

    **Pumpkin Spice Ratio: A 1/4–1/2 teaspoon works.
    4: Cinnamon
    2: Ginger
    1: Allspice
    1: Nutmeg
