Much prettier than caramel popcorn and tastier. Looks great in bowls or strung on the tree.

This is a regular at our house at Christmas too. Disappears almost as fast as you can make it! Thanx for sharing Pumpkie!

I make this every year for Christmas, this year was no exception! It's fun, easy, looks beautiful, keeps well and can be very addicting... but that's OK, cuz it makes a huge batch! Instead of two 15x10 baking pans, I use my big roaster with handles and tall sides, it works perfectly and not a single kernel escapes over the sides! I typically use 1 1/4 cups of popcorn kernels and everything gets coated very nicely and fits inside the roasting pan very well.

This was perfect for Christmas treat bags and, since it makes such a large batch, there was plenty to go around. Everyone enjoyed the flavor and agreed that it wasn't hot at all. Next time I plan to double the topping ingredients to get more of a crunchy coating.
