April 6 is National Caramel Popcorn Day. I very openly admit I have very little self-control in regard to some food — and caramel popcorn most definitely falls into that category. I will eat it until it is all gone, no matter how much is on hand; so it’s just easier not to keep any on hand. However, since today is a day where it’s officially okay to eat it, I’ll force myself to do so. Here’s a recipe I tried from cooks.com. It’s dangerously easy and dangerously delicious.

- 1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
