Before the party, i checked with my son what he would like to have in his Birthday party. He requested this caramel popcorn. When I making this popcorn, remind me of an invitation came to me few years back as to invite me to appear in a TV morning program to teach how to make popcorn. I was shy at that time, so I turn down the invitation ^_^.
I still refer to the old recipe, but this time I reduced water as I found the caramel sauce was a bit watery
Not the first time doing popcorn, but i still feel excited to see this popcorn after opened the lid.
It is not difficult to make popcorn at home, but we just need some time to bake the popcorn as to let them stay crispy..
