The Best Caramel Popcorn Ever!

This is one recipe I’ve been waiting a while to share. A roommate taught me the secret to amazing homemade caramel popcorn years ago – but it’s too dangerous. Whenever I make this, I end up with sticky fingers, an empty bowl, and a blurred memory of  happy tastebuds. My husband has this problem too, so we made a deal. Amazing sweet-and-salty caramel popcorn only makes an appearance at our house twice a year now – during the April and October sessions of LDS General Conference. I missed taking a picture in April since we were moving, but last weekend, I was ready

Isn’t it gloriously gooey? I just love that. 

For those with more self-control, this recipe works great as a movie night snack. Back when I lived with roommates, we frequently made a couple bowls, invited tons of friends, paired the popcorn with apple cider (this recipe‘s great if you like your cider homemade) and put on a fun film. Instant party!

So simple and easy. Did I mention the gifting possibilities? Caramel popcorn makes a great holiday gift. We put it into cute baggies, then add a topper like this or this. It’s a super simple homemade gift that’s somewhat unique amid all the candy cane cookies and fudge (not that we don’t like candy cane cookies and fudge. We really, really do. Check out this awesome two-ingredient fudge here and see how much we like it 😉 ).
