I downsized this to a 3 quart size (12 cups) (using just less than a 375 grams packet of popping corn, which gave me nearly 13 cups). Followed recipe, divided popcorn between 2 large bowls, mixed in caramel mix and divided popcorn between two 13" x 9" baking trays and cooked as per instruction, perfection. The DS's music recreation group for intellectually challenged adults absolutely devoured and enjoyed (and boy can they be tough critics). Thank you WJKing.
