Caramel Corn Recipe

2 packages microwave popcorn (not butter flavored)
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons water
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Prepare popcorn in microwave according to package directions. Pour popcorn into 1 or 2 large bowls. (You will need plenty of room to toss with hot sugar mixture.)

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add water, sugar and cinnamon, increase the heat, and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Be careful; the sugar mixture is extremely hot! Pour half of mixture over the popcorn. Carefully stir or toss to combine. Add remaining sugar mixture and combine. Serve.


This is from Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee. I had a crunchy/sweet tooth craving last night and I just happened to have seen this on her show yesterday. Lucky for me it's so simple that I had everything needed to make it! It was scrumptious and I can't wait to make it again!
