Fall is in the air and with it brings all things pumpkin. If you are like me and can’t get enough of pumpkin desserts and snacks, then you are going to love this easy Pumpkin Spice Caramel Corn Pops recipe.
I love that the caramel in this recipe isn’t sticky and messy. The great thing about the corn pops is that you don’t have to worry about the annoying hulls and hard kernels that you get with popcorn. I like to make my own pumpkin pie spice because I fill like it has a more vibrant flavor than the store-bought blend.
You can find my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice on my site. If you don’t want to make your own, no worries you can totally use the store-bought pumpkin pie spice. You might want to plan on doubling the recipe, because these Pumpkin Spice Carmel Pops are so hard to stay away from. Everybody who tries them ends up coming back for more and more. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
