This Caramel Puff Corn is the perfect treat for when you are craving something a little salty and a little sweet. And all you need are four simple ingredients and less than twenty minutes to make these deliciously sweet eats for your next gathering.
While creating the photo collage for this post, I kept saying that I should call this recipe, Caramel Crack, because that is what it really is. It is so darn addicting. Honestly, I don’t think it ever lasts more than one day in our house. And it makes a lot…like a gallon storage container full!
It’s one of those treats you make that is so light and not overly sweet that you eat one, and then another, and then another handful and before you know it there are like five caramel-y little puffs for you, your husband, and your four kids to fight over.
If you do not know what Puff Corn is, well let me enlighten you! It is a lighter airy version of popcorn (usually found in the buttered variety but other flavors do exist as well) without all the hulls and seeds. Which is yet another reason this recipe is so amazing. How much does it stink when you are eating popcorn and you bite into a ding dang unpopped kernel…it’s the pits is what it is…the worst.
