Every year, I used to make all my friends little Christmas gift bags with lots of different homemade goodies. Sometimes caramel corn would make the list. I wish I still had time to continue the tradition (just typing this makes me kind of miss undergrad ha!). Homemade gifts are the best! =) This caramel corn is very easy to make and super addictive! Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! I spent the morning making these rolled sugar cookies … yum! Merry Christmas Eve! Enjoy!
