    Linorama's Note:

    Puff Corn can be found in the potato chip aisle of your grocery store. (The brand we have is Old Dutch, but I'm sure there are others.) Making caramel corn this way gives you great big "kernels" with no hulls or old maids. Quite addictive. Great at a party. Makes nice gifts too.

      We LOVE this ! It just couldn't get any better. One little secret? Cook the sugar/butter mixture to about 310 - 320 degrees. ((hard crack stage). If you don't boil it at least to that temp, the caramel never "sets" and the caramel corn is chewy and spongy, not crisp and hard.

      I just wanted to say that this is just terrific! I have had this many times, but have never made it. In response to The NovakFamilys review, some of us really like "Homemade" better than pre-made, store bought. I did vary from the recipe a little, I love Caramel Corn with Peanuts, so I added Peanuts to this and it just made it so much better!!! Like many others stated, just like Caramel corn with out the old maids or hulls! Thank you very much for the great recipe!!

      My family loves this. I've made it for slumber parties, super bowl parties, and New Year's Eve. It always goes fast. I spray my roaster pan first. Don't know if I need to but it works for me. Thanks for a great recipe.
