Caramel Popcorn – Weekend Adventure in Getting Ready for Christmas


This caramel corn is easy and quick to make, just bag it up immediately so you don’t eat it all!

At my real job, I work with a lot of guys and at Christmas time, I like to say thank you, because the make my job and life easier and more enjoyable.  The people I work with aren’t suit and tie kind of guys, so giving out ties isn’t an option, but sweet treats from the kitchen are greatly appreciated!

I really like this recipe because it makes a lot and really isn’t time-consuming.  It may seem as though it is, but and hour of the cooking time is it just baking the caramel coating on in the oven and just have to stir every 15 minutes, so while it’s doing that you can do something else!
