Big Batch Caramel Popcorn

My husband had a game night last week and I made this huge batch of caramel popcorn for him and his friends. (I had some too!) Wow this is the best caramel popcorn I have ever tried. The caramel is so smooth and creamy and just the right amount of gooey. You can definitely cut this recipe in half for a movie night or football game, because even a bunch of guys only ate about half of this recipe.

Big Batch Caramel Popcorn

5 regular bags microwave popcorn, popped
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Pop popcorn and evenly distribute to 3 large bowls. In a saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, salt, and corn syrup. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Add sweetened condensed milk and boil for 4 minutes, until very smooth and thick. Pour over one bowl of popcorn at a time and stir to coat the popcorn evenly. You have to move fast to be able to distribute the caramel to all 3 bowls and get the popcorn coated evenly (this is great if you have someone to help you). Serve immediately.
