    I got this recipe from a dear friend. She always brought poppycock over for special occasions, then she moved away so I was on my own! It's so easy but impressive - adults and kids alike are addicted.

      Quick and tasty. I left it alone for about one minute to find my preschooler and the caramel burned, so I think it needs constant stirring.

      Very good ! I love that i don't have to bake it in the oven like a typical caramel corn. I think I would add a litle more popcorn or make less sauce next time, 'cause i had a little exra. This is a quick easy treat !!

      Yum - great stuff! Pretty easy to make too! I used regular-pop popcorn and almonds. I took the advice of other reviewers and used dry-roasted nuts and the topping stuck perfectly. Love this treat - thanks for sharing the recipe!
