For me, the popcorn making process is just as much fun as watching the movie itself. I always try to put a twist to my popcorn recipes like my crazy, nutty popcorn and enjoy watching everyone devour it.
This time, I went with a sweet popcorn idea. I have had caramel popcorn hundreds of times and it it always makes me happy. There is caramel, apple chips and pecans in this popcorn which turned out to be the greatest combination ever.
Caramel and popcorn are a match made in foodie heaven.
Making popcorn is a family affair. It is a time when everyone loves helping out in the kitchen. It is a fun way to spend time with everyone. To make apple chips, they put sugar and cinnamon on the apple slices.
That is endless fun for them.
The best part of making the popcorn is pouring hot caramel over the popcorn! Everyone seems to be mesmerized as the caramel lazily falls out of the jar and drops into the popcorn.
I just love seeing everyone’s faces as I pour the caramel.
My favorite Pop-Secret popcorn flavors are Kettle Corn Popcorn and Homestyle popcorn.
They are light and airy which makes them easy to mix with other ingredients.

Caramel Popcorn Recipe
1) Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2) In a bowl, add 3 tbsp of sugar, 2 Tbsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. Mix well
3) Core 2 Granny Smith apples and then cut them into thin rounds. I made them about 1/4″ thick
4) Cut a lemon into half and rub it on the apple slices. Sprinkle the sugar mixture on the apples.
5) Place the apples in the oven and let them bake for about 45min to an hour. The apples are done when they turn crispy.
6) Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.
7) While the apples are cooling, make 2 bags of Pop-secret’s homestyle popcorn according to the instructions in the bag. Let the bag cool for about 30 seconds before opening it.
8) Lightly crush apples them into small pieces and place them in a big bowl
7) Add 2 cups of pecan halves to the bowl
8) Open the bag of microwaved popcorn and transfer them to the bowl
9) Add about 3/4 cup of hot caramel on top of the popcorn mixture
10) Use a rubber spatula to mix the popcorn, apple chips, pecan and caramel
11) You can make popcorn balls or just leave them as is. Either way, prepare to have delicious and sticky hands while enjoying them
