Halloween Caramel Popcorn

October 28, 2010

Since my kids love popcorn, I decided to make a homemade version of Carmel Popcorn just in time for Halloween. The combination of butter, honey and light brown sugar coat the popcorn to perfection. I added some of my favorite nuts and M & M’s, and wow were my kids so excited. This makes a great Halloween snack and gift just in time for a sweet, fun holiday.

These look incredible! And I am dying for the mixing bowl that allows you to pour out your batter without getting it everywhere. I really hope I win!
