Caramel popcorn

My little boy turns 4 today (Happy Birthday munchkin) and I thought the occasion called for a sugary treat. This is my mum’s recipe and always a winner at every gathering. I would love you to let me know how you go (I bet you taste some before it is cool).

TIP – Remove from heat when colour is golden brown, this will give the toffee a bit of chew.
