"Can't stop eating it!" say guests about my caramel corn. For our basketball party. I fix enough to fill a big red tin decorated with the University of Arizona logo. The delectable syrup coats the popcorn well but isn't sticky. —Sharon Landeen, Tucson, Arizona

This is the best caramel corn. As stated-store in air tight containers but it won't last long. It's easy to make, delicious to eat and not sticky like some caramel corns can be.

As a matter of preference, I used a little extra popcorn (about 8 qts) and used dark brown sugar because that's what I had on hand. Excellent! Exactly what I'd hoped for! Thanks for another great recipe!

I once had a recipe for caramel corn that a dear friend gave me, and I lost it in between several moves. This recipe is close, and is easy to make. It never lasts long!
