Microwave Caramel Corn

We used to do this when we were in Married Student housing as poor college students. Everyone in our building would contribute something and we would all participate in the results. One comment. If helps to spray the grocery bag with a vegetable spray like "Pam" first. This will ensure that the popcorn doesn't stick to the bag. Also popcorn popped in a a hot air popper is excellent for this. We used to set the hot bag of finished caramel corn outside on top of the hedge to cool. That worked well until we found one of the neighbors sneaking a bowl of caramel corn out of the bag!(10/27/2006)
