Jump to recipe!

One of our favorite snacks is popcorn! Whether we are enjoying it during a movie or game night, or even as an afternoon snack. Whipping up a batch of Homemade Caramel Corn is an extra special treat!

We love plain Homemade Caramel Corn, but tossing extra ingredients, makes it even more special. For this batch, we added chocolate chips…semi-sweet and white to represent a Black Tie Event for Oscar Night. The original recipe is from Connie at Smockity Frocks.

You could also add candy like our Christmas Candy Crunch, really the sky is the limit with additional ingredients.
