Baked Caramel Corn..Family Night Treat

When my brothers, sister and I were growing up almost every Saturday night mom made Homemade Caramel Popcorn. After having a few bowlfuls (hahaha), I remember getting a spoon and eating all that wonderful caramel in the bottom of the bowl.
Sometimes we should go back and enjoy those memories of childhood.
This is is one of those classic fall desserts that is so mouthwatering, delicious, and addicting you cannot stop eating it. You will be making this time and time again it is that good!!
Why not have a family night get some Fun Fall Bags (there are some really cute ones at Michael's and Hobby Lobby)…..add some Caramel Corn then pass out to neighbors and friends..
