Step 1: Butter n' Corn

The first thing that you need to do is melt about a tablespoon of butter in the microwave. This only takes about 10 seconds. After the butter is melted or almost melted, add approximately 3 tablespoons of popcorn kernels for popping. The amount of kernels and butter will depend on the quantity that you want to make, but there is no such thing as too much butter ;)
Mix up the corn kernels and the butter until the kernels are evenly coated,

Step 2: Brown Sugar Makes Everything Gooder

After you have all of the kernels are covered in butter, simply add the brown sugar. Add enough to mostly coat all the kernels, just like the butter. The amount here will vary also by your batch size, but a small hand full works well for me.
Now you got to mix it all up! Make sure everything is covered and looks goopy.

Thanks! I thought about using a paper bag also, but then I thought that the caramel would stick to the bottom of the bag because you are basically cooking it on the bag. But I like the idea of the staple! I will try that!
Good luck on your Carmel corn endeavors!
Ps. I also added nuts (I used walnuts but I am sure any nut would be fine), and it gave some extra flavor and it was delicious

You could also use a staple to seal your bag of folding the corner does not work. I know it is counter intuitive putting metal in the microwave but small amounts don't seem to be a problem. For instance the cups of soup with the lid have a metal ring. I've made popcorn in brown paper lunch sacks held close with a staple for years. I look forward to trying this recipe. Who doesn't love caramel corn?
LOVE CARAMEL CORN! Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!
