Which can be a problem if you fall in love with this salty-sweet Salted Honey Caramel Popcorn recipe. Made with butter, brown sugar, real honey and sea salt, this is such an incredible treat for those of you who like salty with your sweet.
I kept it really basic and simple here (and easy--so so easy!), but you can really have fun with this. Add a bit of sriracha or hot sauce instead of vanilla or swap in a different extract, add some cinnamon for a cinnamon caramel, or use a floral honey for a sophisticated swap. Adding roasted salted peanuts or almonds would be so good too, or maybe even some toasted coconut?
So many fun things you can do with this.

In a small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, honey, and salt, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Let boil about 5 minutes or until caramel is golden in color.
