READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by cook from scratch

A super easy, super quick caramel corn recipe. You can make microwave popcorn without all the junk! Place 1/4 c of popcorn kernels in a paper bag and turning the top down a few times. Pop on the popcorn setting of your microwave. Listen carefully and remove when the popping slows. Over time you will be able to tell how long you need to pop it.

This is a great recipe. I like how easy it is. I cooked 3 tablespoon of popcorn in a brown bag in microwave for 3 minutes. So I made half recipe. But next time I may add more brown sugar. I think it needed a bit more, for the taste and for a darker color. Thanks cook from scratch :) Made for PAC Spring 2010
