How I didn't eat all this delicious popcorn whenever I pulled it out of the oven to stir it, I'll never know. What I do know is...this is the yummiest caramel popcorn, ever!! I would add that I coated my spoons with cooking spray when tossing, so it wouldn't stick. I also waited until it cooled and drizzled melted chocolate all over, let that cool and then broke it up...just like Moose Munch!! Make this recipe and you won't be dissapointed!!
Oh my goodness!! This is great! I followed the recipe exactly, although I did use low cal corn syrup and it was sooo great!! This is the 3rd recipe I've tried and it is by far the best. thank you so much for posting :)
This is simple and the very best recipe for caramel popcorn, i used it with the maple syrup since i always have that on hand, i did add 1 tsp. of butter flavor because i love that extra buttery taste! This is going to be added to my "traditions" baking for the holiday season, and of course through out the year when i get that sweet tooth! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
Perfect is all I can say! I followed the directions exactly as listed and perfection was the result. The only thing I would change is to not make too much popcorn because it doesn't coat it as well. I made over 2 gallons and my popcorn doesn't look as evenly coated as in Marsha D.'s photo. I think that I would use about 1 1/2 gallons next time. And there will be a next time!! :)Thanks!!
Oh My GOODNESS!!! This stuff rocks! It take a little time and it's hard to be patient for it to cook (once you know how awesome it tastes!) but it's SO worth it! We had a movie night with a small group and had to bring our favorite popcorn, I tried this one (tried margarine one time, nope) for the family first. Then made again and again for a birthday, my "trials" were 4 different batches! When I finally made it for the movie night it was gone lickety split! The other "caramel popcorn" made in the micro, was hardly touched. I'll keep this forever!
I used corn syrup and added the peanuts. I'm giving these a 4 though, I don't really like it. It's too buttery for my taste but I brought it to the office and everyone liked it. Also, fyi to everyone popping their own corn: 1 gallon is about 16 cups of popped corn. I only had 12 cups so I extra caramel which I dropped by the teaspoon onto Pam-sprayed plastic wrap. It set and was a nice soft-chew caramel. This is a high sugar and high fat recipe so I don't think I'll try it again without reducing the butter to 1/2 or 3/4 c butter.
I learned of this recipe from my midwestern sister. The midwestern Wal-marts carry a bag of Puff Hulless Popcorn that she says is great. She also uses the toffee coated peanuts and says it makes a fabulous treat. I'm on my way out to find the ingredients so I can make it for our SuperBowl Party! I told her about the many reviewers who liked the maple syrup rather than the corn syrup; she's going to try that next time (she's not into computer). Thanks Carol for posting!
Crunchy, not too sweet, and very addictive! My Christmas tins were big hits this year!
This is a great recipe. We could not keep our hands off of it. It is crunchy and not overwhelmingly sweet.
Wonderful snack! I used 16 cups of popcorn instead of 8. This made the caramel corn light and crunchy without any stickiness and the taste was still quite adicting.
