Peanut Butter Caramel Corn Recipe

Today (January 19) is nation popcorn day, why not celebrate with this Peanut Butter Caramel Corn Recipe!Cooking Light Cookbook

There is nothing like some tasty snacks and popcorn is one of those snacks we always have on hand in our house.  I love it salty, I love it sweet and if I can get that in a little bit of a healthier way then that’s just an added bonus.  Thanks to the new Cooking Light “The New Way To Cook Light” cook book I can get treats and meals on the lighter side.  I am definitely hoping to add this book to my cook book collection but until then I am going to be trying out the recipe they sent me….Peanut Butter Caramel Corn.
