Expert Tips

For an extra decorative effect, drizzle caramel corn with melted chocolate, so that it runs down sides of cake. For melted chocolate, place 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in small microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds; stir until chips are melted.

Have some fun, and purchase a caramel corn with almonds, peanuts or other nuts added or make your own caramel corn.
