recipe {caramel corn}

Tonight I ushered in fall to our home. I made Caramel Corn. This is a great recipe because it is straight forward and the ingredients are on hand. I like recipes that use baking soda, I don’t know the science behind it but it yields a great shiny non-sticky caramel coating. This recipe does not involve the microwave either which makes the house smell great. Also, no candy thermometer needed! It smells like a fall carnival in my house. It’s amazing.
