Directions

Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper and set aside. Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, 2 tsp. of the Pumpkin Pie Spice, and salt. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil and do not stir for 4 min. Remove pot from heat and carefully stir in vanilla and baking soda until well combined. Place popcorn in a large oiled, microwave-safe bowl. Working quickly, pour hot caramel over popcorn and use a spoon stir and to coat evenly. Microwave the coated popcorn for 4 min. on high, stirring every 30 seconds so the caramel doesn't burn on the popcorn. Stir again to coat popcorn with the melted caramel. Transfer popcorn to reserved sheet trays and spread out in an even layer. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice. Set aside to cool completely before serving. Store leftover popcorn in airtight containers or zip top food storage bags.
