Caramel Popcorn

Easy Caramel Popcorn (Homemade)

Recipe by Trish yee
Popcorn is a must for any movie nights and it is so cheap to just make them at home! I used to buy my caramel popcorns from garrett and it is really kinda expensive for a small bag of caramel popcorn. So, I started making my own at home. These popcorns can be kept for a days or a week. If you like the crunch, feel free to add in some chopped nuts too!

  • Add in some chopped nuts i.e macadamia or cashew nuts for extra crunch. Make sure you toast the nuts before adding them to the popcorn.
