Fast and Easy Caramel Popcorn

Fast and Easy Caramel Popcorn created by Natalie L.

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.

    I’m not one to comment on recipes but I HAD to on this one. I had a sweet tooth and wanted a quick and easy caramel popcorn recipe. This was AMAZING. I actually did only one bag and butter instead of margarine but it turned out SO good. I made 2 more batches for a family party. Seriously so good. Love love love it.

    Because I have a newer more powerful microwave, I only had to cook the caramel for 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. I used a Trader Joe's bag and cooled on tin foil sprayed with Pam. So easy and great looking. Next time I will add cashews!
