Caramel Corn Puffs

I usually use this recipe to make regular caramel corn but I happened to have these little corn puffs on hand so I used them instead. They both work really well.
Caramel Corn Puffs
1 (15 oz.) bag butter flavored corn puffs
2 c. packed brown sugar
2 sticks butter
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1 t. baking soda

Pour corn puffs into a paper grocery bag. (You can use a bowl if you have one big enough, but I don't!)
In a heavy saucepan mix brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup. Heat over medium-high heat until boiling. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and vigorously stir in baking soda. It will foam up like this:
Pour caramel mixture over corn puffs and mix until evenly coated.
Spread into 2 cookie sheets. Bake at 200 F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Immediately dump corn puffs onto aluminum foil to cool completely, then transfer to a bowl.
This makes a TON so it's great for large groups or family events. Enjoy!
