Microwave Caramel Corn

I always have loved Caramel Corn but didn't like the hassel of all that stirring in the oven business! This is a great recipe and so easy!

1 Cup Brown Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 C. Margarine 1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 C. Corn Syrup 3-5 qt. Popcorn

Place popcorn in a brown paper grocery bag. Set aside. Bring brown sugar, margarine and syrup to a boil in a (4 cup) glass-measuring pitcher. Boil 2 min. on high. Remove from microwave & stir in the vanilla and baking soda until light & foamy. Pour over the popcorn & fold down the top of the bag. Shake the bag few times & then place in the microwave. Cook for 4 min. on high, stopping ever 60 sec. to shake the bag & turn the bag to a different side. Spread Caramel Corn on wax paper to cool. Remove any unpopped kernels. This freezes great too, just place in a freezer Ziploc type bag. Enjoy!
