My family loves this caramel corn recipe but especially around the Holiday’s! HINT -- Place the caramel corn in a decorative tin and you have a great treat to pass out to special friends/neighbors/teachers etc. during the holiday season!

This is the best caramel popcorn I ever tasted! Little tip though...sift out the unpopped kernels before coating in caramel.
