In my family everyone jokingly says that I am part carnival worker. They know my weakness is truly carnival foods. And not the new carnival food, but classic corn dogs, cotton candy, funnel cakes (check out the Funnel Cake Dip recipe), and caramel corn carnival food. For real, I love them all. But, I don’t love how hard caramel corn can be to make, so I came up with an easy caramel corn recipe, and it is SO GOOD!

I love popcorn. Kettle Corn is my favorite, then Caramel Corn, and movie theater popcorn. (For real, I would just about hold up a movie theater to get some popcorn right now…)
And, I could really go for some of Chicago’s signature caramel and cheddar popcorn right now. I just ordered some from Amazon and I’ll let you know how it is. Here’s the link if you don’t want to wait.

Pour caramel over the popcorn and mix with a rubber spatula.
Bake for 3 minutes at 350*. Stir with spatula to coat all of the popcorn. Return the tray to the oven for another 3 minutes.
