Here's a super super easy caramel corn recipe you can make in the microwave with a paper bag in just a few minutes.

Caramel Corn
4 quarts popped popcorn
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup dark Karo (corn) syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp baking soda

Put sugar, syrup, salt, and butter in a microwave-proof bowl and cook at full power for 2 minutes. Stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Microwave for 3 more minutes until or mixture has been bubbling for 30 seconds. Add baking soda and stir well. Caramel mixture will change to a lighter color. Put popcorn in a paper grocery bag and pour caramel over popcorn. Shake like it's going out of style. Stuff bag in microwave, cook for about 1 minute. Remove and shake again for about another minute. Microwave a second time for 1 minute, shake thoroughly, then pour out on to parchment paper. Let cool.

Microwave time may vary depending on power.
