Amish caramel corn is a traditional Christmas treat among members of the Amish community, and it's quite easy to make at home. Melting sugar into caramel for this recipe is not as tricky as some people might think. The best results come from careful stove temperature control and ingredient measurements. Caramel corn also keeps longer than some other treats, making it a great option for packaging up and giving to family and friends during the holiday season.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F and combine the corn syrup, sugar, salt and butter in a saucepan and bring this to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and add the baking soda.
