Sticky Popcorn

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by amesandfires

This wonderful candy popcorn is from Annette B. in my church cookbook. We prefer it made with cashews and Reese's pieces as they have the perfect fall colors. Use seasonally colored M&M's for other holidays. It doesn't get hard like some popcorn recipes and is best eaten the day it is made. This makes lots and is great to give away.

I LOVE this recipe! It turned out wonderful and I love the cashews and reeses in it. I have also put mixed nuts in it too. Thanks for sharing. My family loves it!
