ZEBRA CARAMEL POPCORN (Popcorn heaven from Debbie McEwen)

12 cups popped Popcorn                    1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 cup Brown Sugar                            ½ tsp. Baking Soda

½ cup Butter                                    Almond Bark Squares

¼ cup Light Corn Syrup                     Milk Chocolate Squares


Preheat oven to 250*.


Put brown sugar in a 2 qt. microwave bowl.  Chop the butter into chunks and place on top of brown sugar.  Pour corn syrup over brown sugar/ butter.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir to combine.  Return to microwave and heat for 2 min.  Remove and stir, then microwave for 2 min. more.


Remove from microwave and add vanilla and baking soda.  Stir to combine.  The mixture will foam and rise and form a caramel mixture.  Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir very well so everything is coated.


Spread popcorn mixture onto a foil lined jelly roll pan.  Place the pan in the oven and bake for 30 min., stirring every 10 min.


Remove the pan from the oven and spread mixture out on a large piece of parchment paper or foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.


Melt the almond bark according to package directions.  Drizzle over popcorn mixture.  Let harden.

Melt the milk chocolate and drizzle over the popcorn, same as the almond bark.  Let harden.


Break into chunks and enjoy !!
