      Thanks Lindsay! Oh me too! I LOVE popcorn! Especially the kind from the movie theater. ;)

  3. You know how there are certain things you just can’t make because you know you will eat all of it and will have to blame someone else for eating it…..I think this might be one of them. (trying not to lick the screen)

    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes Reply

      haha! I totally know the feeling! I gave away 3 bags this morning because I knew I would eat it all if I didn’t.

  4. omg how cute is she!!!!
    The popcorn looks fantastic!

  5. That looks delicious! Such a cute dessert to have at a 4th of July cookout! And let’s be honest…isn’t everything that involves Karo just completely awesome!?

  6. YUM! in the recipe when you say cube of butter…what does that mean? just like a whole stick?

    i’m pregnant, so excuse the stupid question. :)

    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes Reply

      haha no worries. Sorry, just updated the post. And yes It’s the whole stick of butta!! I used margarine though. Either should work great.

  7. Yum is right! I’m glad you’re so far away or I would be hitting you up for some caramel popcorn right now!

  8. I LOVE Caramel Corn! The addition of the patriotic candy looks so festive! I think I have all the ingredients….I may have to go make some for a late night snack. HA! :)

  9. I love it!!! I knew we’d get along good the moment I met you! LOL! I have a small tute planned for a similar popcorn but with white chocolate and sprinkles…yummmmm…I will have to try this one out though!

  10. This is beautiful! We’d love for you to come link up at THIS WEEK’S CRAVINGS “Summer BBQ Dishes”. Please come on over and share this wonderful recipe!

  11. This recipe is amazing! My daughter is having an end of the school year slumber party so I made some up last night. I ended up making 3 batches! :) 2 for her and her friends and 1 for me to take on a road trip with my friends this weekend! It was so quick and easy. Thanks for sharing!

  12. What a easy recipe. I have made the kind that you have to put in the oven and keep turning it. What a pain that is so haven’t made that to often. This is so much easier. I can’t wait to try it..Looks so yummy!! By the way. Do you use popcorn that you pop in the microwave and with the butter? Thanks for sharing…

    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes Reply

      Yes it’s super easy… you just have to stir it for about 10 min which is kind of a pain (but definitely worth it). I used the microwave popcorn “homestyle” it’s not to buttery.

  13. YUM!!!! I LOVE caramel popcorn. I’ll have to try this one :)

  14. Yummers! Wish I had some right this moment! ;)

  15. Oh my gosh, I could eat her up! So adorable! Oh, and the caramel corn looks delish too! ;)

  16. Popcorn is one of my most favorite snacks, and M&Ms are my favorite commercial candy. The two together? Heavenly! Might just have to whip up a batch for the girls’ sleepover tonight!

    • I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes Reply

      haha I know I love M&M’s especially the peanut butter kind. Whip it up, it doesn’t take long! :)

  17. Yummers!! :D
    thumbs up babe!
    happy crafting,
    Linda

  21. is this supposed to be crunchy/hardened carmel corn or chewy? I made it and it tastes delicious but set and hardened really fast. I wasn’t sure if that was how it was supposed to be or if I cooked the mixture too long? It started bubbling fast and I just kept stirring it for 10 min.
