Caramel Corn

I got this recipe from a friend YEARS ago when I was working as a dental assistant.  I have made it to many times & the recipe has been passed to hundreds of people. So, why not share it with everyone on here! Hopefully you enjoy it as much as everyone else has.

Carmel Corn 
2 sticks butter
2 1/4 cup brown sugar ~ packed
1 cup karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 bags of microwave popcorn 
{or 3 cups air popped popcorn}

Pop popcorn and pick out all kernels that did not pop.  Put popcorn in 1 large bowl or in 2 medium bowls.  Set bowl(s) aside.  In a saucepan, melt butter and add in brown sugar.  Stir till sugar is dissolved.  Add in karo syrup and sweetened condensed milk.  Stir and bring to a a heavy  and steady boil ~ STIR CONSTANTLY. Boil for about 7 minutes, or until caramel is a soft ball stage (250 degrees).  Pour caramel sauce over popcorn and mix well.  Dump popcorn onto cookie sheet and spread out.  Cover with foil or store in zip lock bags or tupperware.
