I made two batches of this sweet treat to fill glass jars my daughter painted for Christmas gifts and was pleased with the outcome. I used 1/2 cup of butter. It was challenging to coat all of the popcorn with the sugar mixture but it worked out okay... It was actually kind of nice to have some pieces less coated than the others. My brother-in-law ate a handful and said, "I'm not really a fan of popcorn." Then said, "This is sweet." and grabbed another handful. That's a win in my book! Thanks for posting.
Made for Kitten's Cookathon 12/2008. Oh yes this is the dessert of the night. I could and did snack on most of it through the evening. Perfet with hot cocoa on a very cold evening. This is super easy to put together and will be a weekly addition to popcorn nite at my house. I love popcorn!
I made a half batch of this recipe just to be sure we all enjoyed it....I sure wish I had made the full recipe as it was gobbled up right away! What a quick and easy treat to make! You can expect nothing else but the best when you make one of Kittencal's delicious recipes!
The flavor is wonderful and the recipe is very quick and easy. I think that 1 cup of butter is way to much for the amount of popcorn. After it cooled it was very oily. I mixed in additional popcorn and about 1 cup of almonds, put it back into the oven and then allowed it to cool on top of paper towels. I might make this again and try reducing the amount of butter. Like I said, the flavor is wonderful!
