What's Popping?

...caramel corn that's what. My mom made some "waistline friendly" caramel corn.

Waistline Friendly Caramel Corn: serving size 1 cup

6 Caramel Squares
1/2 tsp Water
2 TBSP Corn Syrup
10 Cups Popcorn
  1. Air pop 10 cups of popcorn. Or you can use the popper from Target pictured below.
  2. Next, place the caramels, corn syrup and water in a microwaveable cup or dish.
  3. Microwave for 40 seconds.
  4. Stir.
  5. Microwave for another 30 seconds until melted.
  6. Place the popcorn in a glass or ceramic dish.
  7. Carefully pour the HOT caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat.
  8. Spread the caramel coated popcorn on a cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes at 350º.

What a perfect snack to take care of cravings for sweets!
