“So I've been trying all the world's caramel corn recipes, and I really liked this recipe but felt it belonged on much more than 6 cups of popcorn. The water that is added seems to help it spread, and I thought it was a little thick for the coating but quite good. I did add some vanilla to this because I couldn't imagine it not being there--I added it when I added the baking soda. However, I doubt you can make a bad caramel corn. I'll post this recipe as written. Courtesy of Pillsbury Christmas 2010.”
