We have been using this recipe for years, and I can't believe I never rated it! This is my top favorite recipe for caramel popcorn--so easy and tastes incredible. It's buttery, sweet, salty, crisp and just plain sinful. My only complaint is once you eat the first handful, it's difficult to stop. I could eat the entire batch by myself. :)
