On the heels of yesterday's National Caramel Day, today's food holiday is a slightly more savory twist on the typically saccharine treat. Caramel popcorn is an easy alternative to the usual salty-buttery palate, coating the kernels with a thin, pleasantly sweet crust.
We vouch for this caramel popcorn recipe from blogger Coconut & Lime, who coats the popped popcorn in a mix of brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, salt and baking soda before tossing the mixture in the oven for a crispy glaze. Promises Rachel, "It has a good caramel taste and it's so easy, it's a great (low fat) alternative to just eating buttered popcorn on movie night."
