    This is a smaller amount, great snack for one hungry person! This recipe came from a local paper in the early 1980's.

      This was a quick & easy recipe. My kids will really like it. I think maybe I'm too used to my old fashioned, slow-baked caramel corn. This tastes a lot like Crunch 'N Munch or Cracker Jacks even, with the hard candy coating and I prefer my caramel corn a little softer. I'm not sure what wattage microwave this was developed in, but I think the last 1 minute of cook time was too much in my machine, as it ended up burning a bit. I air-popped the popcorn and made everything else as stated. I really like that this makes just a one-time serving amount. I'm sure I'll make this again, but probably cut the timing down a bit or cook on a lower power. Thanks for posting, Iwanttobemartha! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
