Salted Caramel Corn

Happy Halloween, Y'all!
The last two weeks have been super busy for me.   Getting ready for Halloween was always on the list, but when I had time to get to it, I was just wiped out.
So, finally, last night I decided I had better get SOMETHING done.
I planned the meals for today and started the carmel corn recipe my family has used for years...another great recipe out of the church cookbook!
Well, it was all going by the book, until I could SMELL the corn in the oven.
Yes, perfect me, misread the direction and had the corn baking 100 degrees too high!
Again, I was too tired to start over last night.  Instead, I went to bed and vowed to start over this morning.  And boy did I!
For breakfast I made
Skull eggs & brain eggs
Swamp Juice (Odwala Super Food)
To put in their lunch I made:
Sorry, no pictures (well 1 iphone picture)...way too hectic around here this morning!!!
(Click on the idividual food items to see inspiration for each item!)

After kissing the boys and sending them off to school, I worked on the little one's Luke Skywalker Black Jedi costume.  I'll post a link here as soon as I post the costume.  You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find this Luke Skywalker costume!
Then, I set off to try my luck with the carmel corn again.
This time perfection and a little inspiration!
I'm sure everyone has already been doing this, but it just came to me to add sea salt to the (almost) finished caramel corn...OH...MY!!!  It is soooo good!

Here's the recipe if you want to give it a try yourself!

2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup clear Karo corn syrup
2 sticks butter
Mix and boil five minutes.
Remove from heat.  Add
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt.
Stir and add
1 teaspoon soda
Stir vigorously.
Pour over popped (1 1/4 cup unpopped) corn in a large, greased roasting pan.
Bake 1 1/2 hours at 225 degrees.
Stir every 30 minutes.
After each 30 minutes, sprinkle with
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Yields 20 cups
