I got this recipe from a friend. I first had this at her house and was scribbling the recipe down almost immediately. We don't always have butterscotch chips, milk chocolate chips work well with the recipe too.

For some reason, this turned out a little dry for me. I don't know if it is supposed to? At any rate, everyone else really liked it and it was gone right away.

I made as stated and it turned out Great, be sure to stir while in the oven. Otherwise, the caramel settles to the bottom and you get a slightly burned taste. This had just the right blend of caramel/butterscotch, definitely worth it!

We LOVED this recipe! Thanks so much for posting it! I made it with whole almonds (a lot of them!) that I toasted in the toaster first. It was nice and crunchy, and not sticky at all. The flavor was better than any candy popcorn that I have ever had! I wish I could give it more stars!
