Easy Homemade Caramel Corn

Easy Homemade Caramel Corn by Fronie Mae Bakes

Homemade Caramel Corn of my absolute favorite snacks. My mom made caramel corn for us when I was a kid and I started making it about 10 years ago using her recipe and everyone who tries it, loves it. Every Christmas I make several batches and fill up decorative tins to give as gifts. This year I decided to use puffed corn instead of popped corn and it was just as delicious!
