Place the popcorn in a 17"X12"X2" pan. Remove any unpopped kernels.
Melt the butter in a pan on stove with the corn syrup, sugar, and salt. Stir until mixture comes to a boil then stop stirring and let cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add baking soda and vanilla.
Pour over popcorn and bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Stir popcorn and bake 5-10 minutes longer. Put hot popcorn in bowl while adding chocolate chips a few at a time so they melt onto the popcorn.
For fun add some broken pretzels and nuts before baking. You could also try some white chocolate chips too. I have made this Caramel corn adding dark chocolate M&Ms after the popcorn has cooled. Bagged, it makes a colorful addition to any gift basket.
