Homemade "Cracker Jacks"

These are one of my biggest weaknesses, therefore I don't make them often!


Have ready 5 quarts of popcorn and 1 cup of peanuts in a very large baking pan. For convenience I use the insert for my electric roasting pan, it is large, deep & fits in my oven.


2 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter, 2 sticks
1/2 c. dark corn syrup
1 tsp. salt

Boil 5 minutes, stir in 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, mixture will foam.
Pour syrup over popcorn mix and bake in 250 degree oven for 1 hour every 15
minutes cool and store in covered contained.
