Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate Caramel Popcorn

I told myself I would wait until the official start of autumn to start my autumn posts but I just can't wait. Here is a recipe I tried for the first time  about a week or so ago when my daughter Britt held a back to school bonfire. It is called Pumpkin Spice and Chocolate Caramel Corn . I found the recipe over at Picky Palate. I made each flavor on its own separate baking sheet. The girls were going crazy for it especially the pumpkin spice. They ate it right off the sheet with spoons warm right out of the oven. You are supposed to use Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses for the Pumpkin Spice recipe but I'm not sure if they even make these anymore. Has anyone seen them this year?

 I used butterscotch chips as I didn't have the Kisses.  I wonder if you could add a touch of pumpkin pie spice to the butterscotch chips maybe? I guess I will have to experiment next time.I also used milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet for the chocolate popcorn.  Here is what we had left the next morning after 2 large jellypans full. It really was scrumptious!

I think this would be wonderful packaged up and handed out for Halloween or just an autumny treat!

  1. Oooooo, those look good! I HAVE to see if they still make those kisses too. Have mercy if they do!!!

  2. Girl, you KNOW we can never wait til the calendar says it's Fall to start thinking about it.....we need these sorts of things early, so we can plan ahead, and have everything ready to roll! :o)

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ok, I saw on this on GLU. I am so eager to try this. I might be able to do this for my staff at Halloween!
