Caramel Popcorn

3-4 bags of microwave popcorn
1 cup light Karo syrup
1 cube butter
2 2/3 cups brown sugar
1 can condensed milk

*Pop popcorn. On the stove, melt butter, Karo, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil. Add condensed milk and bring back to a boil. Boil until it reaches "soft ball stage." (I have no idea what that means, so I just boiled it for a couple of minutes). Pour over popcorn and mix well.

I know! When you use a candy thermemetor there are degrees and one is soft ball. The temp will rise to that stage as it boils. But, I think it's easier to boil it for a few minutes like you did.

Softball stage is when you take a cup of COLD water, place a approx. a teaspoon of mixture into it. When you can form a "soft ball" with your fingers and pick it up, it is soft ball stage. Should be VERY soft - not at all firm - just able to pick it up in once piece.
