I believe this to be the actual version of a dumbed down recipe circulating on Pinterest - exact same picture, at least. I've never made caramel corn before - it always seemed like a very involved process. This was really simple, though. Yes, it takes a little time to get it all together (the melting time) but it was totally worth it. My daughters shook some sprinkles in while I was mixing and that was fun. We made the popcorn in our microwave popping bowl and only did half the amount - saving the rest of the caramel for another time. I'll be interested to see how well it melts down next time. Don't hesitate to make this - it's really yummy. Oh, and we only have mini marshmallows. I found somewhere online where it said 1 lg marshmallow=10 minis ... meaning 230 for this recipe. My husband counted them out and it worked great!




Quick & Delicious! For the amount of time and effort I had to put into this recipe (virtually none) I was thrilled with the result! One important tip, remember that burning butter drastically alters flavour. Cook slowly! Also, the caramel goes farther than you think. It's very flavourful so you likely won't need to use it all. Like the recipe says, you can store the extra and microwave it later. Wonderful! Thank you for this recipe! It's a keeper!!!
