Caramel Puff Corn - AKA Crack Corn

This is ADDICTIVE, so addictive, that we call it Crack Corn in our house.  Do not make this when you are home alone, or I promise, you will eat the entire batch by yourself.   You have been warned!

Caramel Puff Corn

2 bags Cheetos Popcorn - butter flavored
1 stick butter
1 c brown sugar
1/4 c lite corn syrup
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda

Put both bags of popcorn in a large aluminum roasting pan.

In a large saucepan melt butter and add all ingredients EXCEPT baking soda.  Cook at medium heat for about 5 minutes, until "bubbly". 

Remove from heat, stir in baking soda (mixure will froth and bubble up a lot).  Stir until creamy and smooth. 

Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and stir well, coating all pieces.

Bake at 200 degrees for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. 

Cool and store in an air tight container.
