Oh Wow, Do I Have A Treat For You!
Alright, last night I had a craving! I wanted something sweet and slightly salty! My first instinct was to make my 3 minute, 3 ingredient salted caramel. So I did just that, made a caramel in 3 minutes.
Now, what to put that smooth and rich caramel on. Sure, ice cream might be the first thought, but I was looking for some crunch!
Goo & Sweet & Salty…Oh, My!
Sure, one might think that this is a caramel corn, but it is far from it. I used very little caramel…just enough to give it a slight sweetness and the salt gave it that, oh you know…salty flavor that I was after!
There was enough goo from the caramel to allow the popcorn to stick together slightly. Yay, I used the word goo, but hey this is some good goo!!
What makes this a healthy popcorn recipe? Glad you asked!

Here is why this popcorn is a healthy alternative to what you find at the market:

Yay, I’d say this is a much better option than anything else on the market out there! And it will take you only 5 minutes to whip up! Now that is what I am talking about…delicious and simple!
