Don’t you love that it’s warming up outside?!? Ever since I moved to Utah I knew I had mild seasonal depression. Winter makes me sad and it just lasts way too long here! But I don’t realize how I really feel until the sun starts to come out and I feel warm again. It’s like I’m a new person! I want to be outside and run around! I just love the warm weather. We really need to move back to Southern California someday…
Anyway, I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it the other day. It’s amazing! I had to share it with you! It’s called Vanilla Cake Batter Caramel Popcorn and I found it on the Love Veggies and Yoga blog. I’m sure she would love a visit from you!
Here’s how you make it.
Vanilla Cake Batter Caramel Popcorn
(Makes approximately 8 cups of caramel corn)
1 bag of popcorn (I used buttered popcorn which also gave it a salty and sweet taste) or 6 tablespoons popcorn kernels, unpopped (6 to 8 cups popcorn, popped)
1/2 cup white cake mix (or vanilla, yellow, funfetti, or similar)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Light Karo syrup (or light-colored corn syrup)
pinch of salt, optional to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips (optional)
