Pure Bliss Caramel Popcorn

My sister-in-law, Judy, has the best sugary treat recipes of anyone I know!  Many years ago she shared this recipe, Caramel Popcorn, with our family and we immediately fell in love with it. We have tried buying commercial brands but few, if any, come even close to satisfying one’s taste buds like Judy’s original recipe. As you spend time with your family enjoying a movie, a sporting event or a board game, make sure to make the time together extra sweet by breaking out this recipe. Your family will most assuredly appreciate the effort!
