    Feingold Mom's Note:

    The kids love helping me make these. They are wonderful for school party treats. Also, you can add almonds or peanuts for an extra flair.

      Oochie, ouchie...I'm blistered from tongue to toe from the hot caramel, but it didn't matter. I was just so happy that I didn't burn the popcorn for a change. Oh, I had to hurriedly pop additional popcorn, otherwise these would have been a little heavy on the caramel. A good, good old time favorite. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.
