Easy Caramel Popcorn Recipe

caramel popcorn

When I was growing up, one of my very favorite snacks was a box of popcorn and peanuts coated in delicious caramel.  I am sure you know which box I mean.  Of course, it helped too, that there was a prize inside. One night this week, I wanted a snack and that was all I could think of that I wanted to eat.  Naturally, I didn’t have any in the house so I decided to make my own.

I only had microwave popcorn but I thought at least that would be easy.  After the popcorn was popped, I dumped my cocktail peanuts in the bowl with the popcorn.

Then I decided to up the flavor a little bit and added mini pretzels.  That was because I just love pretzels in just about anything.

I then drizzled caramel sauce over the mix and stirred thoroughly until well coated.

I poured the mix onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and let the mix dry for a few minutes. After it had dried, I poured it into bowls and sat back and enjoyed a treat that tasted almost like the ones from my childhood.
