This easy-to-make caramel corn is a family favorite. You don’t need corn syrup for this recipe.
We’ve tried a lot of recipes in search of a good, easy-to-make caramel corn that doesn’t use corn syrup. We finally found one we love. This popcorn tastes amazing… as buttery and caramelized as it should be. No need for corn syrup! It couldn’t be easier to do. It quickly rose on the list of the most requested foods in the family!
Start with about 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you take out all of the unpopped kernels. You don’t want to bite into one of these! We put our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on how to make the perfect popcorn here) but you can use a pop-up or microwave.
