Who does not like caramel corn? I believe the only thing missing from this recipe are some type of nuts. That would surely be a nice addition to the mix.

Caramel corn is one of my favorite treats. I have never even considered making my own. I am a DIY'er to the 10th degree but never caramel corn. The ingredients are simple and easy to acquire and the directions well written out. I just may be making some caramel corn this week.

Hello Karenf, I think it's impossible to eliminate the corn syrup, but you could try substituting with Splenda or even Stevia. Just start out with like a 1/4 cup of substitute sugar and then maybe do the other half with 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Splenda and Stevia are very potent. I can't make any guarantees but it's worth giving it a try. Let us know how it turns out. Thanks!

Questionbr br I'm Diabetic, but LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Caramel Corn. I have a sugar cookiebr recipe that I substitute 50% of the sugar with Spelnda. Would this also work for the caramel corn recipe since it's still got corn syrup?br
