    6. 6
      Take out of microwave, and shake again.

    8. 8
      Immediately pour out on a baking pan to cool.
    9. 9
      Variations:.
    10. 10
      For a lighter, more buttery taste, substitute white sugar for the brown.
    11. 11
      For extra crunchiness, mix 2 cups peanuts, almonds, or other nut of your choice with the popcorn prior to mixing the caramel.
    12. 12
      For chocolate lovers, microwave for 90 seconds, stirring once, 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tsp shortening and drizzle over caramel corn.
    13. 13

      This was great! My dad use to make caramel corn in the micro and I think this was very close if not like the recipe he used. Loved it. Definately going into my Favorites of 2014. This was such an easy dish to prepare. Thank you for posting the recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
