Almonds, pecans or mixed nuts can be added to stir in with the syrup. After the caramel corn has cooled, pretzels, cereal or dried cranberries are novel additions.  That is, if you have any Caramel Corn left over.

I recommend  Julia Ann’s Caramel Corn to eat and give, enjoy with hot cocoa in front of the fireplace.  C-o-z-y!
