    UltimaMommy's Note:

    This recipe is sure to be a hit with friends and family. It’s super easy and there’s not much of a mess to clean up afterwards. My kids love watching the mixture foam after adding the baking soda. We all start eating it right away but I do prefer it after it has had time to cool. It’s a real treasure to create! P.S. You might want to break it up with your hands as it starts to cool.

      WOW! Super easy, super delicious and no clean-up! I popped my own popcorn and used 2/3 cup of kernels as that's what fits in our popper. I also added 1/8 t kosher salt to the syrup. I'll never make caramel corn the old way again. Thanks so much for a true keeper Ultima Mommy. Made for the I recommend tag game.

      Delicious! Easy! I made a couple minor modifications. I use butter. 2/3 of cup unpopped popcorn, added a pinch of salt and a dash of vanilla extract prior to adding baking soda. I also opted to place popped corn in a large bowl rather than a paper bag as I've read that paper bags are not food safe and can ignite. My kids love it.

      Can I give this 10 stars please?? So easy, and such a hit. We only had butter, so used that, and it was so delicious! We used a grocery bag, and it worked perfectly, then spread it out on 2 cookie sheets to cool, and it was crunchy and perfect (ours wasn't chewy at all)! We may add some peanuts at the cooling stage next time. You definitely want to use something to toss the popcorn and caramel that is becomes a gooey sticky mess! I almost used a tupperware, and I'm glad I didn't. This will be requested for many future events! (Note: I have found it works better to make this in 1/2 batches, so the corn has more room in the bag to shake around. The initial cooking time is more like 3-4 minutes though otherwise it starts to taste burned with the smaller amount cooking).
