Caramel Popcorn Heaven

One of our favorite weekend snacks is caramel popcorn (my dentist loves that I love it so much... I am sure I owe at least two root canals to my caramel popcorn habits). I've shared the caramel recipe before because it's the same recipe I use for anything that calls for caramel: apples, ice cream topping, turtles, pretzels, etc. but why not share it again?

1 cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup light corn syrup
2 cups brown sugar, packed

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Bring it to a boil and cook until it reaches the soft ball stage. Pour over popcorn, stirring to coat evenly. (The amount above is enough for 5 or 6 batches of air-popped corn, so I usually cut the amount in half.)

**Do you love caramel popcorn too?

That's very similar to the recipe I use! I also LOVE caramel popcorn, or caramel anything (thought I've realized I enjoy it more when I'm pregnant). Yummm.

My word you have been busy updating your blog!! Looks like you have had some fun with the kids over the past couple of days. Good luck with the book club. Olivia inviting Jaxon and McKay to come one day at car pool, but the couldn't figure out why they would want to go talk about books. Funny.
