I've never really been a fan of caramel corn.  I'm kind of a picky sweet food eater.  But I wanted to make some treats for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap that would keep and transport easily.  While searching Allrecipes.com, I found a recipe for caramel corn that looked pretty good!  It had raving reviews, so I knew I must try it!  And, omg, I am not sorry I did.  Well, my body wasn't exactly happy, but my mouth was!  Mmmmmm!

The recipe I used is here:  http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/my-amish-friends-caramel-corn/detail.aspx

I used Orville Redenbacher's Tender White popcorn and instead of 1c of margerine, I used butter.  I believe I used either 2 or 3 bags of the popcorn.  I put the popped popcorn into a large paperbag, poured the caramel mixture in and mixed with a wooden spoon.  I then poured the bag into a large roasting pan covered in tin foil and popped it in the oven.  The caramel mixture spreads more when you stir it while its baking.  After baking, I dumped the caramel corn onto my counter that was covered in wax paper and separate the pieces.  Its so easy and so good!  I will be making this for Christmas for my family, for sure!

After it was all cooled, I put them into bags for my partner, her husband, and kids.

My sister even liked it, and she shares my same sentiments for caramel corn.  So, even if you aren't a caramel corn fan, definitely take a chance on this recipe!

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for posting this!  I've been trying to find stuff other than cookies to mail to my brother who is in a college dorm.

I made this caramel corn tonight.  It's still in the oven, but the few pieces I snitched while stirring were really good.
