I had been thinking of all sorts of popcorn recipes since the webinar.  When I started cooking up the Toasted Sesame & Almond Caramel Popcorn the guys were pretty skeptical to say the least.


I knew it would either be fabulous or a complete flop.  I got what I was hoping for and it was FABULOUS!  The guys were surprised and they loved it too.  I know it sounds a little bit different but trust me, it is addicting.

Just look at those toasted sesame seeds and almonds and that sticky caramel, how can you resist?
