I love this recipe. I think if you like completely covered caramel corn, I would 1/2 the popped corn or double the caramel recipe part. I used 7 bags of microwave popcorn and doubled the caramel and chocolate parts of the recipe. The chocolate part was done in a double boiler and worked perfect- the marshmallow must suspend the chocolate because it didn't seize like chocolate would if you add water (gloppy blobs of chocolate). Love this recipe!!
I made this as a christmas gift for my mom and sister and they loved it! The only issue I had was with the coating, it was too thick and I preferred a light drizzle rather than a fudgy type coating so I melted chocolate wafers and drizzled that over. I also left out the nuts, and halfed the recipe using one bag of microwave popcorn. Popcorn stayed crisp and delightful. Thanks!
I have to echo the other ratings! OH MY! Had a hard time keeping not only myself out of it, but the whole family! I didn't have peanuts so I added some pecan halves that I had cut in half. Thanks for a great recipe
I just made this today to use in Christmas baskets and I had to hide it from myself so I wouldn't eat it. I let my son try some and he loved it. It's time consuming but very good and worth the time involved. Thanks andypandy!!
Thanks andypandy for this recipe. I gave this as Christmas gifts, and everone couldn't believe that I could have possibly made it. they thought it was from a gourmet shoppe. They only thing that I did was to place the chocolate into a baggie with the tip cut off to swirl thinly all over the carmel corn, that way it was finer and not too thick or gobby looking. Thanks again this is surely a five star recipe if not more!
I have been remissin reviewing this. I have made this 3 times so far. I gave two batches as part of christmas baskets and the first batch barely made it out of the oven, before it was devoured by family and friends who would not go home til it was finished and they could try it. I did not add the chocolate coating. The first time I tried it I ended up with a charred lumpy mass, when I removed it from the microwave. I always do chocolate at 30% power, so I do not know what happened. Anyway, I will try the chocolate coating again, but to quote my SIL when she tried it from her gift Basket, "OMG, this is awesome."
