    Chilicat's Note:

    This recipe has never failed me. The popcorn turns out sweet, buttery and very crispy. If you want caramel corn, just use light corn syrup instead of dark.

      Wow, this is amazing! and very easy. I only had light corn syrup but it was still amazing, very crispy and light. I'll be making this again! Although I'm a little put off by the nutrition facts... 101g of fat?!? how is that possible??

      I actually got this recipe elsewhere, but it's the same. It tastes great and easy to do. I make this before going to the ball game now and it beats Cracker Jack hands down in freshness and taste. Great treat for kids (as long as they don't have a peanut allergy). Just try keeping them or a sweet tooth out of it!
