Karo syrup recipes?


A friend has offered up a bottle of both light and dark Karo syrup, which I should receive at our next get together, nice. Anyone have any Tried and True, go to recipes? sweets or dinners?  I've been to the Karo website :  and they have a lot of recipes. Any help would be appreciated! TIA!

We use it in peanut butter popcorn for a sweet treat. I'm sure I have other recipes, too, but right off the top of my head that was the first thing I thought

I mainly use Karo for making marshmallows. Here is my tried and true recipe compliments of the Barefoot Contessa.

We use Karo syrup for making popcorn balls and peanut brittle, and that's about it. One bottle will stay in the pantry for a couple of years. This is the recipe that my mom always made, and that my family and I now make, for popcorn balls (BTW, I've made them in other shapes, too, such as eggs and bunnies for Easter).:
The peanut brittle recipe that I use, is also my mom's. It's from the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook c.1957. Any of those older cookbooks should have some good candy recipes that would use Karo syrup.

Well you can make pancake syrup(add maple flavor or make a better one by using maple syrup/karo in whatever ratio you like.
I always use Karo in my pecan pie, tho I don't make that very often(think 1 or 2x a year).

You can use it lots of savory dishes too.

I use the clear one in cookie icing at the holidays. The golden and dark is for pecan pie - like Sluggy said. Pecan pieces go on sale at ocean state job lot all the time they make a great pie

My family loves the Peanut Butter Chewies. See the recipe on that site under nobake cookies. They are delicious. When I was growing up, I used this syrup instead of the heavier pancake syrups.

The only things I use it for are pecan pie, and also my Mom's brownie recipe--it uses a tbsp. of Karo in addition to sugar--I suspect it might have been a WWII adjustment because of sugar being rationed?? We used to put it on pancakes when we were kids---not nearly as good as real maple, but a heck of a lot cheaper.

Pecan pie!
It also makes a very nice pancake syrup by just adding maple extract-flavoring.

Carol: Try this recipe for Cinnamon Syrup over pancakes or waffles or French toast. It is also an awesome topping over vanilla ice cream!
Cinnamon Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy cream
Bring all ingredients except cream to a boil in a saucepan. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add cream. Cool for 30 minutes
