My Favorite Carmel Popcorn

My Favorite Carmel Popcorn Recipe that can be made chewy or crunchy; whichever you desire. TrishSutton.comDid you know that there is a day recognized as National Popcorn Day?

That’s right! The amazing food known as Popcorn has it’s own day; January 19th.

My most favorite way to enjoy Popcorn is popped on the stove in Coconut Oil then drizzled with a little butter and sprinkled with coarse salt.

And my second favorite way is covered in Carmel…

In honor of one of my very favorite foods I share with you My Favorite Carmel Popcorn Recipe.

Ingredients:
– 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
