    Narshmellow's Note:

    It doesn't sound like much but I prefer this as an alternative to caramel corn, it is that good. I make it at Christmas time, pink and green and mix them together. Simple to make, sweet and crunchy. Colorful to boot! It goes fast. As far as I know this is an old recipe from long ago.

      I used less than half of the sauce and salted it. I think this sauce recipe would work for 3 or 4 times as much popcorn!!!! I was skeptical about this recipe. It is quick and easy way to make some sweet popcorn.

      A little too sugary not my favorite but it did look festive.

      Love This Recipe! My mom always made mother goose popcorn when I was a kid. Her recipe calls for twice the milk and boiling the syrup till 230 degrees. I don't like waiting for syrup to cook so I was thrilled to find this recipe. It worked perfectly for me. I did STIR it until it boiled and continued boiling for a minute or two. It wasn't sticky at all. I have an air popper that pops 1/2 cup of kernels (about7 cups popped) and I thought it was the perfect amount. I like it heavily coated though. I simply stirred until it started to cool and it set up and had the perfect mother goose popcorn texture I've always loved. I made it for Halloween and flavored the orange colored batch with orange and the purple batch with vanilla. YUM!
