WeightWatchers Caramel Popcorn Recipe

Weight Watchers Caramel Popcorn recipe

I love caramel popcorn, so when I found this recipe I naturally had to try it. I must say I was NOT disappointed by the result… this is a wonderful recipe!! The only problem I had with it is that it was so delicious that I ate almost 3 servings all by myself!

You can store this in an airtight container for up to 1 week, but if you’re like me, it won’t last that long. 😛
