Since my kids love popcorn, I decided to make a homemade version of Carmel Popcorn just in time for Halloween. The combination of butter, honey and light brown sugar coat the popcorn to perfection. I added some of my favorite nuts and M & M’s, and wow were my kids so excited. This makes a great Halloween snack and gift just in time for a sweet, fun holiday.
