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 :)

Top Review by SUPERchef :)

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!
