What a treat for that sweet craving, not high in fat either. This would be great placed in some decorative tins and given as a gift.

this was easy to make but a little boring in the flavor department. to make it better (to my liking) i did the following. added more pecans. added a tiny bit of vanilla to the sugar/honey mix after it had boiled, and before i put the popcorn in the oven i shook salt over it and again when i stirred half way. this gave it a nice sweet-salty taste like kettle corn and it was pretty good.. and for anyone else out there like me who doesnt know how much 3 quarts is.. its 12 cups.. but i'm sure most of you already knew that... thanks i had fun trying this recipe.

Wonderful! No one would guess this sweet crunchy treat is lowfat! I used Homemade Microwave Popcorn #71499. Very crunchy with a great honey taste. This would be great in gift bags. I will warn that you should be very careful to get ALL of the unpopped kernels out beforehand. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!
