Caramel popcorn recipe, Easy caramel popcorn

Caramel popcorn is a crunchy, sweet, chewy and delicious snack prepared by tossing freshly made popcorn in caramel. This easy and quick to make homemade snack is irresistibly delicious that it is adored by both kids and adults. I knew about this caramel popcorn for the first time when I was in grade 4 and during my vacation in Singapore my aunt bought it for me, the instant reaction was the disliking color and taste as I am not a great fan of sweets. Due to her compulsion I tasted just one popcorn and later I finish the whole packet. So that fond I was for this, and still have no idea as to how many packets I had in those 2 months of vacation. Even now when I find these in shops I make sure to get a small pack to relish, but I always have a feeling that homemade caramel popcorn tastes far better as it is fresh and I have never seen this caramel popcorn made fresh in shops just like salty ones that we get right out of the popcorn maker as the caramel popcorn needs some rest time to harden to attain the perfect texture and crunch. So the packet ones are not much favored by me. So if you also love caramel popcorn or don’t have experience on its taste try making it today. The kernels used here is popcorn kernels so make sure you don’t buy normal corn. i tried to keep the recipe simple so made this popcorn in stovetop method. So let’s get to the making!
