    We LOVED this recipe! Thanks so much for posting it! I made it with whole almonds (a lot of them!) that I toasted in the toaster first. It was nice and crunchy, and not sticky at all. The flavor was better than any candy popcorn that I have ever had! I wish I could give it more stars!

    This is so good and so easy. I love to make it as a special treat for the kids, that is if my husband and I can stay out of it long enough.

    Fantastic! Due to allergies we left out the nuts, but are excited to have a phenomenal substitute for cracker jack. Better tasting, too! Thanks so much for posting!

    This is amazing! I followed the recipe exactly since I was making it the first time. It is crunchy, sweet and buttery. I left the nuts out - I prefer my sweet corn without nuts. I used a big foil roaster that I picked up from the local grocery. Cleanup was very easy. Thanks so much Mirj for posting such an easy and tasty recipe. This is definitely a keeper!

    I made as stated and it turned out Great, be sure to stir while in the oven. Otherwise, the caramel settles to the bottom and you get a slightly burned taste. This had just the right blend of caramel/butterscotch, definitely worth it!
