Buttery, sweet caramel corn with a sprinkle of sea salt is a must make treat for all your fall gatherings. I’m so sorry for the late post but I didn’t have a photo so share because this stuff disappeared so quickly that I had to scramble!  Currently, I have a new batch of Caramel Corn cooling on the counter with a big sign posted – DO NOT EAT ~ love, Mom.

There’s just a little something special that happens when you mix salty and sweet flavors together. This recipe combines the best of both! All you need is a big pot, a sheet pan along with a few ingredients and you are in business. Movie night just got extra special.
