REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This was the first time I had ever tried to make Caramel popcorn but was asked to make it for my sons fall festival. It turned out great and everyone loved it. Really easy and delicious! The only thing I would say to do is to keep the popcorn warm in a 200 degree oven while waiting for the caramel to get done. I read this in another recipe and it worked really well! Great recipe and I am about to go make some more for a movie night tonight!

I'm glad I found this recipe, lost the almost same one this year from my Betty Crocker book! I've done this recipe for over 10 years now. You can also replace 2 cups of the popcorn recipe with walnuts or pecans. This is an excellent recipe and is the best carmel corn i've ever tasted, it won't last long! It does take time, and you really want to make sure you do bake it and check it every 15min otherwise your popcorn will burn! Transfer it to wax paper ASAP out of the oven to make sure it's still soft and soak the baking dish before the corn syrup hardens.
