divine caramel popcorn

I have been bugging a friend for awhile about this recipe, and now I have it! It is divine! The best I have ever tasted. When Olivia came home from school this afternoon, we quickly shelled the peanuts, popped the corn, and now we have a big panful cooling on the table. Levi can't stop sniffing it. I can't wait to chow down when the children are in bed tonight. Hopefully there will be some left for tomorrow's after-christmas-concert-treats...

Caramel Popcorn
(you will need a very large bowl to toss the
popcorn and the sauce in)
16 cups popcorn
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
½ cup corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup peanuts

Pop kernels and add peanuts.
Melt next 3 ingredients and bring to a full boil.
Add vanilla.
Pour the liquid ingredients onto the popcorn.
Mix until evenly coated.
