Love caramel popcorn, but don't like the fuss. Was given this recipe years ago. It is a favorite.
I made this last weekend and it was a great hit with both adults and children. I made it with the light corn syrup and loved it, but next time I'm going to try it with the dark corn syrup to see which we like the best. I used the popcorn with light butter.
What a perfect snack! Easy to make, had the ingredients on hand, quick and, most importantly, delicious!! I made it for my DH and I last night when we were both craving something sweet. I used only 1 bag of microwavable Movie Theater Butter flavored popcorn and halved the recipe and it turned out great. The caramel did stick to our teeth at first, but not too badly. I found that if you let it sit for at least 30 minutes, it "crisps" up and the stickiness goes away, but we just couldn't wait that long! I would say that the flavor is more like butter toffee than caramel, but still REALLY good! This is a keeper and a great go-to recipe for a quick and sweet snack.
