This is my favorite recipe for toffee flavored popcorn! I've made it several times, and I usually leave out the almonds. The trick to this recipe is to be patient and let the sauce does take awhile, but it's well worth it! The color seems to gradually turn a soft amber color right about the time the candy therometer reaches 280. Delicious! Thanks, Hazeleyes

It was too gooey for my taste. I've made caramel corn before and I understand this is caramel corn, but it just wouldn't harden up! Should this of gone in a oven for a bit like caramel corn??? I may try in one more time and add some baking soda to it.
