This homemade caramel corn recipe is great for a quick tasty snack. I remember making it with my Grandma when I was a kid. It’s super quick, super easy, and absolutely no mess! Simply use a brown grocery bag and all the mess stays in there. Just throw it away when you’re done!
I haven’t made this in an extremely long time, so when I was looking over the instructions and saw that I was supposed to put already popped corn in the microwave for 3 minutes, I grew a bit concerned. I asked my mom, “Won’t this burn the popcorn?” She ensured me that it wouldn’t, and of course, when I made it it was fine. She also told me that white popcorn, versus the yellow, was softer and better to use.
This popcorn was as tasty and good as I remembered it! Not to mention it was a breeze to make! Jeremy is always having me buy boy scouts caramel corn whenever they sell it. But as soon as he tried this he loved it! I guess I’ll be making it often! I think I might try adding peanuts in it next time as well.
