This Caramel Popcorn is the Caramel Popcorn I grew up eating. My brothers have perfected it by making sure to use the high quality ingredients. It makes a big difference on the taste.
Another trick is to not cook it too much. As soon as the butter is melted is when it’s done. I let it cook for another 10 seconds or so but no more. If you let it cook too long then the caramel gets harder making the caramel popcorn a lot more chewy and teeth pulling.
It makes a lot so be prepared for a party or share it with some friends. It’s so good so share before you get addicted and eat it all yourself.
