"I got this recipe from a dear friend. She always brought poppycock over for special occasions, then she moved away so I was on my own! It's so easy but impressive - adults and kids alike are addicted."
Serving Size: 1 (93 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"Quick and tasty. I left it alone for about one minute to find my preschooler and the caramel burned, so I think it needs constant stirring."
"Very good ! I love that i don't have to bake it in the oven like a typical caramel corn. I think I would add a litle more popcorn or make less sauce next time, 'cause i had a little exra. This is a quick easy treat !!"
"Yum - great stuff! Pretty easy to make too! I used regular-pop popcorn and almonds. I took the advice of other reviewers and used dry-roasted nuts and the topping stuck perfectly. Love this treat - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Can I please give this 10 stars. YUMMMMMMMMY. The only problem I had was my nuts would not stick BUT I keep them in the freezer and I think they were still to cold. Did NOT keep me from eating the whole batch ( I cut it in half) Will make again and is going in my divine recipes of 2009 cookbook Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag"
"This is THE most scrumptious homemade caramel corn EVER! I didn't even add vanilla (didn't have any) and it was still the bomb! Definitely a keeper!"
"I made it without the nuts. And made the recipe for 6 servings (1 bag). I thought that 1/2 cup of butter was too much so I used 1/4 cup. Maybe it's better with 1/2 cup. My caramel was very thick. And it was hard to combine with the popped corn. But anyway, it has a very good taste. And I'll have to try it again later but be sure to have a very large bowl. Cause the one I used was not large enough. LOL Thanks Appleydapply. Made for Zaar Star Game"
"Great snack! I made this for my friends grandchildren who came to stay the night. They munched out on it watching a good movie, and told me I could make this again tomorrow night! I used almonds and walnuts in mine and when I mixed it in I let it completely cool before serving, then broke up some of the larger pieces and the nuts stayed in with the glaze and popcorn. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Appleydapply! Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game 1/08 Linda"
"UPDATE: Made again WITH nuts! This stuff is addicting! &&&&&&& Made this for my dd who loved it. Though I had to leave the nuts out bc she won't eat them. This would be an awesome gift!"
"This is very good. It is quick and easy too. Just be sure you have a "REALLY BIG" bowl, as mine tried to spill over the edges a bit! Delicious treat anytime, but especially as a gift at the holidays. I think you could cut down on the "sauce" or add more popcorn..I had a little too much! I made this for Zaar Stars!"
"This was so GOOD !! The only thing I did was cut the recipe in half, and made no adjustments. I used 1 cup of peanuts, and 1 cup of Spanish peanuts.Excellent taste, and a lovely snack, on a cool night. Made for Holiday tag."
"YUMMY!!! Made this "just because" and am glad I did. I gave some to my neighbor in a pretty little tin, just like the "real stuff" and she loved it! Very easy to make and no candy thermometer needed - which is the best! I added 2 1/2 bags of popcorn, and tried to pick out all of the old maids before adding the coating. I think next time I'll use 3 bags and a bigger bowl as there was plenty of coating to go around. Made for Tic Tac Toe Tag Game."
"I made this for a friday afternoon snack for the kids and myself. I did cut the recipe in half, and then followed as written. This is awesome tasting!!! My only problem was that the majority of the nuts didn't get into popcorn and syrup. I used Spanish Peanuts, which I think have oil on them, so that may have been the problem, next time I will use a dry peanut. Thanks for sharing appley dappley. Made for bevy tag."
"Oh I really don't know what to say besides WOW! I'm waiting for it to cook as I write this. I used peanuts because that is what I had on hand. I wish I would of popped an extra bag of popcorn because there was still some coating that would of easily done another bag. Anyhow I will be making this again. Thanks for posting."
"OUTSTANDING and 10 stars all the way! I love this stuff. I made a half batch so I used 4 cups fresh popcorn (not in the microwave), subbed Splenda for the sugar with GREAT results, and used peanuts and margarine. FABULOUS stuff and I cannot wait to take it to a party. It will surely be the hit!!! Will photograph when it completely cools. Made for Bevy Tag."
