Balsamic Caramel Corn


2 bags plain, unbuttered microwave popcorn
8 oz. unsalted butter
2 cups packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup light corn syrup
1 tsp. baking soda


• Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
• Following product instructions, pop the popcorn. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard any unpopped kernels.
• In a large saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, salt, vinegar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and stir until all ingredients are combined. Remove from the heat and stir in the baking soda. (The mixture will foam up.)
• Pour the mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat. Spread the popcorn mixture evenly onto a baking pan and cook for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread onto wax paper to dry.

Please specify what size microwave popcorn bag to use.....with that much butter and brown sugar, it must be a large bag; otherwise the recipe would not turn out properly! please clarify! Thank you very much.
