Very good! I made 1/4 batch and it worked fine. I did reduce the boil time to between 4 and 5 minutes. A little more involved and time consuming compared to the recipe I've been using (#78693).

Well, I have nothing big enough to mix 7 quarts of popcorn, 2 C of mixed nuts, plus the syrup, so I halved the recipe. Maybe that was the problem -- because my fiddle faddle fizzled. I ended up with a glob of syrup on top of the popcorn and for the life of me, I couldn't mix it all together. I was looking for more of a toffee flavor also. Thanks for sharing, but I won't try this one again.
