Creamy Caramel Microwave Popcorn

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by VillageMom

I prefer this recipe to other caramel recipes because it uses sweetened condensed milk which gives the popcorn a nice creamy taste. Made in the microwave, this recipe is quick and easy to make.

This is wonderful! Quick tip: after mixing the popcorn and caramel, put it in a plastic (microwave safe) bowl and heat it for 4 minutes at one minute intervals (mix the popcorn after each minute) this will make it crunchy and not sticky! YUMMY!
