RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is the recipe I use for Caramel Puffcorn. It's great, since there are no hulls and it just 'melts in your mouth'. Great for really small children too. I buy the Puffcorn in the 'Gourmet Chips' section of the supermarket...usually by the 'fancy' tortilla chips. I have never seen them in the 'normal Lays/Pringles' area of the store. I believe they are called corn puffs or corn puffcorn.
