YOU GUYS! This is the BEST CARAMEL CORN RECIPE EVER! I don’t mean to yell. I just want to be clear. You haven’t lived until you’ve had this caramel corn. It is simple to make and is a real show stopper. I have given this as teacher’s gifts, eaten it in place of birthday cake and have been accused of hoarding it for myself. If that is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
You know you have good friends when they gift you the world’s best caramel corn ever. Well I mean, I think my recipe is the best caramel corn recipe ever, but prepackaged this is the stuff. Kristin picked this Pinkleton’s caramel corn up on her recent vacation to Portland and knowing my love of snacks, caramel corn and cardamom, she knew I needed to try it too. The flavor is outrageous. It is at once bitter and sweet with subtle and bold flavors. It’s the perfect crunchy texture. And I didn’t want to share it. I also knew that if I wasn’t careful, I would end up eating the whole bag in one sitting. I ate some on the beach during a family picnic. I packed this in my suitcase for my New York trip (I never like to be snacky in a hotel with only a mini bar available) and brought the rest home with me. This would make a great gift for the foodies and snack lovers in your life. I’m dying to try the other flavors too! I mean – salted vanilla, salted molasses and spicy mexican cocoa?! Order some for you summer vacations. You’re welcome. And thank you, Kristin, for knowing me so well!
