When it comes to foods that fill our kitchen with tantalizing smells, toasty popcorn and buttery caramel are at the top of the list. So imagine combining the two in salty-sweet caramel corn. It’s a cinch to make: Just melt sugar and butter for caramel. Season it, toss it with fresh-popped popcorn, and dust it all with sea salt. We guarantee that the aroma will last much longer than a fresh batch.
