I was out at the in-laws today and my hubby’s step-mother mixed this yummy treat up. I’m used to making my Caramel Corn in the oven. So when she started talking about a microwave caramel corn I was thinking really? Could it be possible?
She quick made this while we chatted away in the kitchen. I couldn’t believe how fast it came together!
I instantly knew I had to try this out. I mean you make it in a paper bag you get to throw away instead of scrubbing. How amazing is that?!
So we went home and I quick mixed it up that afternoon. Yup it was amazing. And simple. I love my other caramel corn recipe too, but if I need a quick treat to bring somewhere I know I’ll be going to this recipe.
If you get invited to a last minute holiday gathering and need a treat to share this is your baby! Plus when I looked at the recipe card she and copied off for me it said (mom) on it. A recipe that is passed down always is always amazing in my book!
Remember it’s the last day to go enter the Little Baby Bumblebee going on right now!
