Expert Tips

  • Butter or margarine flavors this treat wonderfully and makes the best caramel coating. Do not use vegetable oil spreads.
  • Pick up a bag of popped popcorn to use in place of the microwave popcorn.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
