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!

Yummy sweet popcorn! Made for a Valentines day treat for my daughter's class. Tinted pink and it was perfect. I needed to package in individual baggies, and it was quite sticky. So I baked it at 250 for ab out 15 minutes and it hardened the coating. Perfect snack! My daughter wants me to make multiple batches and tint different colors for rainbow popcorn.

This is very festive and pretty much tastes like sugary popcorn. I don't think it holds a candle to caramel popcorn, but it is much better for you. So if you want a sweet, pretty popcorn, this is for you. I made it green for St. Patty's Day. I did half the milk mixture and one batch of popcorn for me was 12 cups. I thought I would have to make more of the sugar mixture but it turned out ok. I would suggest halve all the ingredients but do about 10 cups of popcorn. Or 12 if you want it more lightly coated. This would be pretty at Christmas, but I always make white chocolate peppermint popcorn for our neighbors. Thanks for a fun recipe!

I halved the milk/sugar mixture and still had too much liquid for the popcorn. We still poured it all on and just dumped the popcorn onto wax paper to cool. It seemed so sticky, we decided to form it into popcorn balls! So much fun! The kids loved it!

I had to pop more popcorn to use all the syrup-it may have been a lighter coating than the recipe intended, but I coated 32 cups with some syrup still puddled in the bottom of the bowls.

This recipe is wonderful. For a twist try adding unsweetened punch powder to recipe for a very flavorful treat.

I halved the recipe but could easily have done the 8 cups of popcorn with what I ended up with. I did 6 and it was fairly heavily coated. Still, it turned out very nice and dried fairly quickly. I used paste food colouring and ended up with a vibrant pink.
