  • 1/2 stick butter

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • Microwave the above on high in a 4 cup glass measuring cup for 4 minutes.
  • Put the popped popcorn in a large brown paper bag.( 10 cups)
  • Microwave the butter, white corn syrup, brown sugar and salt on HIGH in a 4-cup glass measuring cup for 4 minutes.
