Easy 10-Minute Microwave Caramel Corn (BEST EVER)

Easy 10-Minute Microwave Caramel Corn (BEST EVER)

Caramel corn that is made in the microwave, but tastes like something you could buy from a state fair. This stuff if gold. Made with only 5 ingredients and in less than 10 minutes!

Like I said, this stuff is gold. Well, if gold could be made into food anyway.

Have you guys ever tried that Caramel & Cheddar Chicago Mix Popcorn before? If you haven’t – then that is a good and bad thing. Bad because what are you waiting for?? But also good because once you try it you will never be able to stop. Seriously. I should know. I got a huge tin for my birthday last year and my roommates and I finished it in less than a week.

So where am I going with this story? This caramel popcorn tastes like the caramel popcorn that comes in the blue and white bags!! Seriously I would have thought a popcorn that good would take hours to make. Nope. Only ten minutes in the microwave without any candy thermometer or anything.

This is perfect for tailgates or parties or cookouts and an after school snack if you want to be the best mom ever.

Be careful if you leave this stuff out at a tailgate though because if left out too long the popcorn will get stale, and this is not the kind of popcorn that should go to waste. But let’s be honest, it will be gone before you can blink.
