3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/3 cup sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 250°F. Spray 2 (13x9-inch) baking pans with no-stick cooking spray. Divide popcorn between pans.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, sugar, butter and corn syrup in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 7-9 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking, without stirring, 4-6 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 234°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a soft ball.

  3. STEP 3

    Remove from heat; stir in baking soda and vanilla. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn; sprinkle with nuts. Sprinkle each pan with 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Stir popcorn to coat.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Immediately place caramel corn on waxed paper. Sprinkle evenly with remaining chocolate chips. Cool completely, 3-4 hours or until chocolate is set. Break into pieces. Store in airtight containers.
