This wonderful recipe was given to me by my friend, Maria Hall. It is very delicious and very easy.
8 oz bag of baked corn puffs
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. white karo syrup
1 c. brown sugar
1 t. baking soda
Pour bag of baked corn puffs into a large bowl or roasting pan. Set aside. Bring butter, karo, and brown sugar to a boil in a 2 quart pan and boil for 5 minutes. Add baking soda and stir quickly to dissolve soda. Pour over corn puffs and stir until well coated. Spread on a large cookie sheet and bake in a 250° oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Pour out onto waxed paper. I baked mine in the roasting pan for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes, and it turned out fine. If you leave out the soda, it will resemble a hard toffee.
Note: You can find the corn puffs in the potato chip aisle.
