    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is habit-forming, it is soooo good and so simple to make, you can also use unskinned almonds or use whatever nut you desire --- you may also add 1/3 cup molasses for a stronger caramel flavor :)

      pretty good, a little buttery tasting, so i might try molasses next time... it should be known that the for step 4, the mixture will rise, so be sure to have it in a big pot to begin with :) i dont like my popcorn to be fully coated, so i used about 1 1/2 cups of kernels good stuff kittencal! Also, pop the corn into a bowl then transfer it to another, all the unpopped kernels are at the bottom!

      I've been making these since 1985 when I got the recipe from a cookbook,"the Texas Experience." I began adding 1/2 cup molasses and 1 whole tsp.baking soda.This makes them more like the original cracker jacks. I would give these out as Christmas gifts, there was an elderly man at church that would ask me to make it for him again whenever he ran out. Thank you Kittencal for posting as I will now make them for my friends here.

      I've made this quite a few times and it's always turned out great! Nice simple, easy recipe. Easy to double or half too.
