Caramels and Popcorn ~1908

Caramels and Popcorn Recipe.

Happy caramel popcorn day! To celebrate, here’s an easy recipe for chocolate-covered popcorn.

But wait, I hear you asserting: Chocolate covered popcorn isn’t caramel popcorn! You’re correct! Caramels was used a generic term to cover all things sweets. Finding this recipe was a challenge, and I didn’t come across one until 1908, though the interwebs claim that caramel popcorn has been around for over 150 years. Regardless, this is a fun recipe!
