Caramel Popcorn

Great caramel popcorn for any holiday or occasion. If you like chewy popcorn, bake less.

Puffed Caramel Corn

Rating: 5 stars
Puffed corn can be found in the potato chip aisle of your grocery store. This is a great caramel corn without hulls or unpopped kernels. Warning: you need to make a double batch of this because it doesn't last long, at least not in my house. Very addicting. Love it!
