Homemade Caramel Corn

Got this from a friend and made it one night instead of regular popcorn for "movie night". A big hit with my kids. Turning and stirring the popcorn every 15 minutes gets a bit old, but it's worth it in the end.

This is great caramel corn!! I am a caramel corn connoisseur and this makes for an evenly coated buttery caramel corn that disappears quickly!!! The oven makes it crunchy and is a must in the process of making this.
