Very impressed with this! Pretty easy to make, once I found a pot big enough to hold all the popcorn, pretzels and nuts (used one of my tamale pots). I had to make a couple partial subs, due to pantry item availability: I didn't have enough light brown sugar for 2 cups, so I used 1 cup light and 1 cup dark, and I didn't have any dark brown corn syrup, so I used whatever light corn syrup I had (just shy of what I required), and topped it off with a heaping spoonful of Lyle's Golden Syrup to make up the difference. For some unknown reason, I added M&M's to the first pan, then dumped it all in my pot to mix. That pan ended up very separate, with no clumps to break up, and no M&M's stuck to anything. The next pan, I sprinkled the M&M's over the sheet of caramel corn and let it cool untouched. I have to say, not one M&M stuck to anything in that pan either. That pan stayed in a sheet and had to be broken into pieces, but no M&M's stuck to anything, lol. Not a big deal, it just means that the mixture probably will need to be shaken up a bit to redistribute the candies so they don't all sink to the bottom of the container. Definitely not a deal-breaker, since the flavor of this is just fabulous! I ended up with two 15.7cup bowlfuls of caramel corn -- great for a potluck/party/holiday gifts. Thanks for posting!
