Caramel Puff Corn

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Linorama

Puff Corn can be found in the potato chip aisle of your grocery store. (The brand we have is Old Dutch, but I'm sure there are others.) Making caramel corn this way gives you great big "kernels" with no hulls or old maids. Quite addictive. Great at a party. Makes nice gifts too.

We LOVE this ! It just couldn't get any better. One little secret? Cook the sugar/butter mixture to about 310 - 320 degrees. ((hard crack stage). If you don't boil it at least to that temp, the caramel never "sets" and the caramel corn is chewy and spongy, not crisp and hard.
