My mom has been making this recipe around the holidays for years now and always a huge hit! Try adding in nuts like Pecans to make it that much better!!

I can't believe only 2 people have reviewed this recipe. I have been making it for several years & it is one of the treats everyone requests at Christmas. I know our friends south of the border don't have Old Dutch Popcorn Twists, but they could make it with Chester's butter flavored Puffcorn by FritoLay. Great recipe, a must try for anyone who likes caramel corn but not the popcorn hulls.
