Oven Caramel Corn

Krista Hanna


EVERYBODY loves it! My grandma used to make it, and gave me the recipe at my bridal shower! She always said to follow the directions exactly, and everytime I haven't, it hasn't turned out right! I guess she knew something, and I should have listened! ?

How to Make Oven Caramel Corn
