One must work fast to coat the popcorn as it hardens really fast. Nice popcorn though.
It's good! It was very sticky, I started to wonder if I boiled it too long......but I followed the directions exactly. I used 14 cups of popcorn and after mixing the caramel with the popcorn I divided it between two parchment lined baking sheets and baked it at 250 for about 45 minutes. I stirred it a few times. Wonderful flavor, I can't imagine another caramel popcorn tasting any better than this one! Quick and easy to make as well.
This was a big hit in my house! I did use 1 cup of dark brown sugar and 1 cup light instead of 2 cups of light....made it taste really good!!! I also only had to bake it about 20 minutes and it hardened up almost immediately....so if you try this method make sure to put it on parchment or wax paper before baking...makes the release a lot easier. Thanks for a great recipe and I will definately be making this a lot!!
This is my first attempt at making caramel popcorn, and I found it to be very easy. I did use butter instead of margarine, added cashew pieces, and roasted in the oven for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. And as a matter of fact, my clock did some strange things...oh, wait. This is the end of daylight savings time -- we "fell" back one hour today. Ah, well. For a moment I was left wondering. I was testing the recipe in anticipation of using it for Christmas gifts for neighbors and co-workers, along with cinnamon popcorn and peppermint, candy-coated popcorn. This will definitely be in the gift basket. Truly a winner!
Yummy, sticky, gooey! Perfect! Put part of it in the oven for 1/2 hour as suggested to give as gifts. Just as good! And I didn't even mind when all the clocks stop...
This is now my favorite Friday night snack! Sticky and delicious!
My kids and I made it for Saturday movies and couldn't put it down!
This is the best caramel popcorn that me family and I have ever eaten! My boys literally inhaled the stuff!! I made it tonight for our family's game night, but it didn't even make it to the fourth round of Books and Runs. Thanks SPB.
This was a great recipe. My daughter and I enjoyed making it. Great taste & easy to make. I doubled the popcorn & had more than enough to coat it. Thanks for the tip Chef #991286. I was wondering how to keep it from being sticky. I'll try that next time. I'd also suggest when making the caramel to use a larger pan than you think you need. If its too small it will bubble over when you add the baking soda. We had a close call. Thanks for the great recipe! It was gone in 2 days!
Great recipe and fun story to go with it ;)I used butter in place of margarine and baked in oven on two greased cookie sheets for the full hour stirring and breaking up every 15 min as directed. Delicious, tastes like crunch n munch popcorn which I love. Next time I'll add some cashews or salted peanuts for extra yumminess!
