Super Sweet Caramel Corn

I'm always craving sweets this time of year.  I can't resist an open bag of candy hearts!  I have discovered that the best part of all the sweet somethings is sharing them with the ones you love.  More for them and less for me is good for the waist line as well.  This caramel corn is so yum and the recipe makes so much that it's perfect for sharing at all the Valentine parties this week. 

Caramel Corn
4 bags of microwave popcorn
salt to taste
1 stick of butter
2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup light karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Pop the popcorn and divide it into 2 large bowls.  Salt the popcorn.  In a medium saucepan combine butter, vanilla extract, brown sugar, condensed milk and karo syrup.  Stir over medium heat until the caramel mixture begins to boil.  Remove from heat and pour over bowls of popcorn.  Mix until the popcorn is covered.  Sprinkle with valentine hearts and m&ms.  Package in clear or paper bags and give them to all your sweeties. This recipe is easy and fun for kiddie helpers.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We are going to spend ours celebrating Caroline's 11th birthday and making Valentine's.  Oh and softball, dance, basketball and hockey!-phew
