I actually made two caramel corn recipes, the first a labor intensive oven recipe and this one. I ended up not having enough from the first recipe for my gift baskets so I threw this one together on Christmas Eve. I have to tell you this one was much better than the other! It took WAY less time and the flavor was much better! Great recipe!

This gets 5 stars because it is the easiest carmel corn I have ever made and also so tasty!!! It literally took me maybe 10 minutes to make a huge batch of carmel corn. I will be making this many more times in the future. Thanks for a great recipe LizAnn!!!

Great recipe! Tastes great and is super easy. Love the chewiness of the caramel. Will definitely make again.
