Caramel Popcorn

Whether it’s by the bowl in front of the TV, or from coloured mason jars at a party’s end, our caramel popcorn is the best treat for the moment, whatever it may be.
The popcorn’s savoury nature subtly offsets the glossy sweetness of the enveloping caramel to create a moreish coupling that’s impossible to refuse.
Our recipe is wonderfully easy to make and with little to no mess, too. It’s absolute perfection.
