      My roomate and I threw a Halloween party...she went out and bought a zillion of individually wrapped carmel candies to make carmel popcorn. What a waste! Being a vegan, I used this recipe and substituted margarine for butter. Yum. Most people told me (away from my roomate's ears) that mine was much better :-) P.S. Very sticky stuff...if you have any dental appliance, I don't recommend this.

      I don't usually review a recipe that has over 20 reviews already - I mean, we get it - it's a good recipe, but this...this is worth another review. I love caramel and caramel (usually) hates me - I can't make it...ever. My family laughs at me, but it is true. Anyway, I can make this! And it is great! Double win! This is a superb recipe - not a ton of ingredients (and all in my pantry) and good, clear instructions that yield a fabulous result. Thank you!

      I used half coconut oil and half butter... And also lined pans with parchment paper to make easy cleanup... Excellent and will definitely make again
