Peanut Butter Caramel Corn

Growing up I remember my Mom making the most amazing caramel corn. A while back I go that recipe from her and I just can't seem to make it through the Halloween/Fall time without itching to make it. We were headed over to my brother's house to watch the Oregon Ducks play USC a few weeks ago (they won by the way, and are ranked number one!) and so I made up the caramel corn to take over to share with everyone. This recipe just instantly takes me back to my childhood, I love it.

3 poppers of popcorn
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
5 tbsp. butter
1tsp. vanilla
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Combine butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and corn syrup into sauce pan.

Melt and bring to a boil for one minute. Then remove from heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter.

Prepare popcorn (place in large bowls to make it easier to stir in the caramel).

Pour the caramel over the popcorn and stir it all together till the popcorn is well coated. Let cool for about 10 minutes and enjoy!! And enjoy you will!
