Tried It Out Thursday: Cinnamon Carmel Corn with White Chocolate

When I came across this recipe I immediately wanted to make it!!  It looked and sounded so delicious!  I actually held off a couple of days, but it so did not dissappoint me.  DELICIOUS!!  I found it over at An 'A' For Effort.  She has some really delicious recipes for real people.  It is an AMAZING blog. 

Cinnamon Carmel Corn with White Chocolate
adapted from An 'A' For Effort
12 C popped popcorn (I used 2 bags light butter microwave popcorn)
1 C brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C corn syrup
1/2 C butter, cut into small chunks
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 squares of almond bark
1 C slivered almonds or other nuts (optional)
 Preheat oven to 250 F. Line a large baking sheet with tin foil.
 Place 12 C of popcorn and nuts (if using) in a very large bowl. Set aside.
 In a microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Add chunks of butter and corn syrup.
 Microwave mixture on high for 30 seconds. Stir to combine then microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and stir again before microwaving for an additional 2 minutes. Mixture should be hot and bubbly.
 Add vanilla and baking soda, stir to combine. The mixture will foam and rise. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir VERY well until everything is evenly coated.  Spread popcorn mixture onto lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.  At the end of the 30 minutes sample a piece of the popcorn. If it is not crunchy return the pan to the oven for 5 additional minutes. Repeat this step if necessary.
 Melt almond bark slowly in microwave and drizzle over popcorn.  Once the chocolate has hardened, break the caramel corn into pieces.
I couldn't stop eating it!! So I had to share with others.
Thanks Abby for a wonderful recipe!!
