This Caramel Corn with Pecans & White Chocolate is one of many holiday
treats my family enjoys every year around Christmas time.
It must be made...no question. Kind of like this cheeseball (it's not called "Best Cheeseball Ever" for nothing). The season just wouldn't be complete without it. In fact, both the popcorn and cheeseball are made at least twice over a couple month period.
It's not like I mind. It's one of those recipes you come across that just works. Every time.
Caramel Corn with Pecans & White Chocolate
15 cups popcorn
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup pecans, rough chop
1 cup white chocolate chips
Heat oven to 200*
Pop popcorn and place in a large bowl (no un-popped kernels). Spray a large baking sheet.
Bring brown sugar, butter, syrup and salt to a boil. Boil 5 minutes on med-low, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in soda. Pour over corn and stir, then stir in chips and pecans.
Pour onto the baking sheet and cook for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
