I used an old cast iron kettle from a pressure cooker. It was great until the handle would not hold steady. I had to go to modern steel kettle, To me, not the same. However I know several friend that use the microwave to fix this Caramel Corn. Too set in my ways to change. However you do it: enjoy with friends and family. That the real reason for Caramel Corn.

One of my favorite Holiday fixings: Caramel Corn for the family, friends and co-workers. If you don’t have a specialty consider Caramel Corn with the buttery, brown sugar covering.

Enjoy the sweet crunchy treat of Julia Ann’s Caramel Corn

To make your Caramel Corn extra special, add so goodies to it: such as peanuts, and almonds while mixing the hot caramel sauce. After it cools and is broken up into pieces, add dried cranberries, or other fruit of your tastes. Best to make 2 recipes of the Caramel Corn as it does not last long.
