Christmas Caramel Popcorn

I got TONS of M&M's for Christmas this year, and was looking for ways to use it up! I made this recipe, and sent it to New York with my family for my dad's mom to enjoy!

1 bag M&M's Brand Peanut Chocolate Candies for the Holidays
6 quarts popped popcorn
1 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp vanilla
1. In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Boil for five minutes. Remove from heat.
2. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. In a large roasting pan, combine popcorn, M&M's and sauce mixture. Toss until completely coated.
3. Place in a 200 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then stir gently.
4. Remove from oven and let cool completely on baking sheets.

I love caramel corn. Here in Chicago many locals like to mix and eat it cheese popcorn :)
