This easy to make oven caramel corn recipe is the hit of every party and will also make your house smell like heaven! You’ll love it!
I found this great recipe when I was sorting through the recipe box we saved from Matt’s grandmother.
It’s an activity I love to do for a whole bunch of reasons.
One, it allows me to remember her and the conversations we had when I was a new member of the family.
And two, I find some really good recipes.
Such is the case with this oven caramel corn.
It is super easy to make, makes the house smell like heaven, and is really tasty.
It’s great to keep on hand for all of the upcoming fall activities!
You’ll definitely want to keep a batch on hand for tailgating, fall parties and, of course, Halloween parties.
I love to serve it in these adorable red and white popcorn containers. But there are also some other great options such as these black and white boxes (so cute for tailgating, since they look like a referee’s shirt), these bags that look like they are straight from a carnival or fall fair, or these gold and white paper cups that are darling and great for a birthday party or girl’s night.

Cook, stirring until the liquid starts to boil.
Lower heat and boil for five additional minutes.
Remove mixture from heat and add baking soda.
Fold the liquid into popcorn to coat it. Tongs work great for this!

Nuts may be added with popcorn if desired.
Caramel corn will keep for several weeks if stored in airtight container.
