The original recipe was from my Aunt, she made it every year as Christmas gifts for the family. She would deliver Carmel corn and cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve so the family Would have them to eat on Christmas morning while they opened there presents. She gave me a cooking lesson on both and now I make these gifts for my family and friends for Christmas Eve. I decided to start flavoring my Carmel corn and everyone has there favorite flavor. The spicy Carmel corn is my favortie.
