Really simple & quick to make - I followed method suggested by lucy_painter in an earlier post but halved the amount of sugar and butter and it was plenty sweet enough for three young boys pretending to be at the cinema!

This is so so good and very, very moreish! I made it in a pan which makes no difference. Will definitely make again!

This was a really easy recipe for popcorn and delicious. But I made the popcorn in a saucepan. Use a sizeable pan cover the bottom with oil (one with a high smoke point). Put one piece of corn in the pan with a lid on, heat the oil until the corn pops then take off the heat and add the rest of the corn straight away. Replace the lid and pop back on a low heat and wait until all the corn has popped. Place into a bowl and pour sauce over the popcorn and stir.

Just made this, sooo good. Definitely our new weekend treat. I also made the popcorn in a pan, just followed the instructions on the back of the popcorn packet.

Use a plastic mixing bowl when covering the popcorn with the caramel sauce, less mess as doesn't stick as much to the sides.
