I am obsessed with popcorn so when it comes to popcorn that has 1-Caramel, 2-Cinnamon, 3-Pecans, and to top it all off 4-White Chocolate. Can I get a heck to the ya?
What I also love about this recipe is that you don’t have to cook it on the stove. I love cooking on the stove but when it involves the kids and my gas range I do get a little scared. It still comes out of the microwave a bit hot but there is no fire.
First, you need to pop the kernels. I prefer using an air popper. It doesn’t have to be a fancy one at all.
Make the caramel and pour over the popped popcorn.
Bake at 250 degrees for 30 minutes. Make sure to stir it around every 10 minutes to get a more even cook.
Drizzle the chocolate over the caramel corn and let it harden. It’s really a pretty easy recipe and it’s one to impress. It’s fun to package it all up cute and give as gifts too.
