Have you noticed that “fast and easy” are in a lot of my recipe descriptions lately?
Life has been crazy busy with my 5 boys and so, simple recipes are the way I roll right now! Last Sunday we were about to watch a John Bytheway DVD and my boys really wanted caramel corn. My Mom’s recipe is the best of course, but I did not feel like taking all the time to get out the candy thermometer and watch and stir, plus I did not even have the ingredients on hand. So, instead I pulled out this quick and easy recipe. Now is it as good as my Mom’s classic caramel corn? No…it doesn’t compare, but my boys LOVE it and I love that it takes 5 minutes to make! So for a fun and quick treat it is perfect! Everybody wins:)
*PS : We used butter popcorn because that is all we had. But regular air popped popcorn would be great!
