Easy Caramel Corn Recipe

My kids love caramel popcorn. The combination of sweet and savory is a guaranteed winner. This is one of the easiest caramel corn recipes you'll ever find. The kids can make it all by themselves.

This was definitely a very fast and easy recipe. I used light brown sugar rather than dark and found the flavor a bit too corn syrupy with very little caramel flavor. I would however try this recipe again because of its ease and try using dark brown sugar or adding a bit more brown sugar. Would make great popcorn balls as well.
