Super Quick Caramel Corn

I love popcorn in any way, shape, and form. I love caramel corn, kettle corn, cheddar popcorn - heck, I've even tried dill pickle flavored popcorn and liked it. So when someone shows me a way to make homemade carmel corn in under 15 minutes -- I say count me in! 

You can either use stovetop popcorn, microwave popcorn, or store bought popcorn for this recipe, but I will say that stovetop popcorn tastes the best (you can definitely taste a difference). 

This recipe would also make a good holiday gift. You can put it in cute little holiday bags and hand it out to your neighbors and friends. Or you can keep it all for yourself. I'm a big supporter of that too.

Thanks to my mom's students Alex and Nicole Collins for sharing this delicious recipe with us!
