It was very easy to make and I did not have to change anything. I added a handfull of roasted peanuts to the popcorn before baking and it was wonderfully delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This caramel popcorn is delicious and very buttery. I plan to try this with nuts next. The caramel coats the popcorn well and the recipe is quite easy. I've used it with dark brown or light brown sugar as well as dark and light corn syrup. I prefer the light corn syrup. The dark corn syrup works just as well but will give you a darker end result. This has made a great gift for the holidays and a wonderful treat.
