SUPER!! This is a delicious recipe--I've already made three batches. It is quite easy to get an assembly line going to make multiple batches. I found it somewhat difficult to "toss" the popcorn and the coating in the shallow baking pan. I finally just put the popcorn in a stainless bowl to mix and found it much easier that way. I also turned it out to cool onto a parchment lined baking sheet and that worked well. Next time, I'm going to try lining the "baking" sheet with foil to cut down on the cleanup. I don't think parchment paper will allow the caramel mix to get hot enough. I used slivered almonds that I buy at Costco as that was all I had on hand. I have been searching for food gifts to mail during the summer and I think this is a winner! Danielle, thank you for sharing your recipe!
