Recipe Of The Day: Caramel Corn

Con Poulos/Food&Wine

Popcorn's pretty great. But caramel-sweetened popcorn, now that's something special. Caramel corn -- and we're not talking about Cracker Jacks here, but the real kind -- is perfectly crunchy, not too sweet, and has a hint of salt to it too. The best way to try real caramel corn is to make it yourself, of course.

If you're looking for a caramel corn recipe to get you started, we've got just the one. Our caramel corn recipe is made with homemade caramel, mixed with peanuts and lightly spiked with tequila. You can't go wrong with this one.
