      We made this in honor of National Popcorn day yesterday - what a treat! The caramel is thin, almost more of a toffee like glaze, than caramel. Not too sticky which was nice. Since my microwave is 1200wt, I reduced the microwaving time by about a quarter (for ex. did 45 seconds, instead of 1 minute) - the popcorn turned out nice and crisp and all pieces seemed to be very well covered using this method.
