  1. Anyone ever try caramel corn in the bar pan? I was on a caramel corn making kick last year (before I was a PC consultant) and used a plan old metal pan. Just wondering if anyone has done this is a stone...

    I do it all the time. Here is my recipe for Caramel Corn.

    Caramel Corn
    Ingredients Needed:

    1/3 cup unpopped popcorn
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup margarine
    2 Tablespoons PLUS 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda

    Cooking Tools:

    microwave popcorn popper or air popper
    Large bowl
    2 qt microwavable bowl (Classic Batter Bowl)
    15x10 baking pan (Stoneware Bar Pan)

    Cooking Instructions:

    Pop the popcorn. Put into a large bowl and set aside.

    Combine brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup and salt into the Classic Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute until it boils.
    Microwave 1 minute more. Stir in baking soda.
    Pour over popped corn and stir to distribute. Place on a 15x10 baking pan and bake 1 hour at 200 degrees, turning every 15 minutes.

    Place on waxed paper to cool.

    Store in an airtight container.
  3. The recipe I use makes a ton, and would never fit in the bar pan. I use the roasting pan. Cleans up like a breeze! The caramel just flakes off!
  4. HUH! Tell me more Jennifer..... :)
  5. Oven Caramel Corn

    2 cups brown sugar
    2 sticks butter
    1/2 cup white corn syrup
    6 quarts air popped corn
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp soda
    1 tsp vanilla

    Boil brown sugar, butter, syrup and salt for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and soda. Pour over the popped corn and stir well. Put on buttered cookie sheets or jelly roll pans (I just use the roasting pan). Place in a 200 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir about every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Store in covered containers to keep crisp.
