BEWARE: Contents may be habit forming

I LOVE this popcorn and make it a lot! Consequently everyone else has become addicted to it too...we made it Tuesday and Thursday this week...

Also, Wendy bought the marshmallows when we made it Tuesday. The bag was smaller than normal but we really wanted to eat this so we made it anyway. Lately when we make it the caramel is really light colored, not very caramely looking (but still really good). This time it turned out perfect and incredible! All thanks to Wendy!

Gooey Caramel Popcorn

Popcorn kernals

1 stick (1/2 cup margarine)

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 10-oz bag marshmallows (if bag is 16-oz just guess, its ok if there's more)
1 tsp. baking soda

Pop a big bowl of airpopper popcorn (probably about 3 quarts when popped)

Seperate hulls out from popcorn.

In microwave safe bowl combine butter, brown sugar and marshmallows. Put in microwave and heat for 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. (stirring after each minute is VERY important) Then add baking soda, stir in and heat for 40 seconds. Stir again, dump caramel onto popcorn and mix until all pieces are well coated. Let popcorn cool for a little bit, this will make it easier to eat. The gooeyness calm down a little as it cools.
