This is my grandma's caramel popcorn recipe. We usually end up eating at least half of it before we ever take it off the pan. :)

The caramel can be a little fussy. This is not a sticky caramel coating, more sugared. The key is stirring the caramel around the edges of the pot every once in a while during cooking, and stirring well before pouring on the popcorn.

  2. Melt butter, brown sugar, water, and salt in saucepan; stir until dissolved.
  3. Cook to soft ball stage (238 degrees), stirring around the edges every once in a while (not very often)
  4. When at temperature, stir well to mix it all up.
  5. Pour and coat the popcorn. Let set and cool before you start munching :)
