The Best Caramel Popcorn

Mary ConleyDear friends,

I’m not the world’s best cook. Far from it. So, if someone says I make the world’s best caramel popcorn, I’m going with it!

The first time I realized it was extra good was when I gave some as a Christmas gift to the principal of my children’s school. She called and told me how delicious it was and that her husband insisted she get the recipe! I have continued to hear the same praise over the years.

The recipe is from a dear friend, Arlene Neumann, and it is found in an old Christian school fundraiser cookbook. It is not difficult, but don’t stray from my directions, because there are two important things to remember:

#1 Use butter regardless of the cost. When I first started making this recipe, it called for margarine. Margarine was the thing back then, but I use real butter, and that is what makes the difference.
