Nothing like a bucket of Caramel Popcorn to munch on when watching a movie or chatting with friends. A crunchy treat with the delightfully rich aroma and taste of caramel, this popcorn recipe is much-loved by kids and adults.

This popcorn is meant to be sweet, but just add a pinch of salt, which helps to highlight the sweetness. However, you must take care not to add too much salt.

My kids cannot stop munching on them. I always ate them at the movie theatre and wished I could get the perfect recipe to try out at home. They turned out awesome when I tried them at home with this perfect recipe. Now we enjoy the caramel popcorn at home watching our favourite movies and have stored them in airtight containers too. Planning to make it for my son''s birthday party to be held next week too. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
