Here's another holiday treat for you! I've been making this yummy treat around the holidays for years now. It makes a TON of caramel corn, but don't worry it won't last long. I always add peanuts but it's optional if you aren't nutty like me!
I always make this in my huge "Thatsa Bowl" from Tupperware. Love me some T-ware! It fills it plum full. I brought it out to Mom's on Thanksgiving and set it out after dinner and even after an amazing Thanksgiving meal it was gone by the time I left.
If you are looking for an easy and crowd pleasing treat for the holidays you can't go wrong with this!
