Cheesy Caramel Puff Corn ~ Easy, snack you can make in the microwave! A perfection of sweet, salty and a hint of cheese! Trust me on this one!
Have you noticed my obsession with Puff Corn yet? It started with the White Chocolate Puff Corn and now I bring you Cheesy Caramel Puff Corn!
Every recipe is just as amazing as the next, mostly because well, I adore puff corn. Plus they all mix up my favorite combination of sweet and salty. That you can’t go wrong with my friends.
I’m not real sure how I got the idea of caramel and cheese and thought hmmm that’s a wonderful combination. Because well let’s face it. It sounds a bit odd doesn’t it? Rest assured though that I am not leading you astray. You got to have a little faith in me on this one. I adore the regular puff corn drenched in a bath of caramel so I decided this would be a fun twist on things!
I brought it to a holiday party and my sis-in-law came out with a handful, looked at me and said you must have brought this huh? I then had to ask how she knew, she informed me because it was amazing but quite an odd combo so it must be mine.
I’ll take that as a compliment. I’m amazing and a bit odd too. So hey my recipes must be a reflection of me huh?
Maybe you have a football party? A New Year’s Eve party? …..I want to sit on my couch and stuff my face with something amazing party? Then go ahead and get on this recipe. I won’t tell anyone if it’s the latter of the options!
