Made for PAC Fall '07. This is a great caramel corn recipe. I made half a batch and took it to bingo for my friends to enjoy. Everyone loved this recipe. The caramel coating on the popcorn was light and crunchy and my friends were surprised when I told them I made it. The next time I make it I think I am going to add some honey-roasted peanuts to the batch. Thank you for a wonderful caramel corn recipe, MK Lady.
