    Best recipe I have tried for caramel popcorn. Make sure the sugar is well dissolved.

    I had the same problem with it covering all the popcorn. I had originally planned to 'half' it, but when I saw how little there was, I just halved the sugar, popcorn but still put in the 1/4 C butter in and it turned out excellent!! other than that, it was very easy! (and i don't like complicated recipes) I didn't put salt in it..as the popcorn had already been salted (leftovers, lol..;) and it still worked out great. thanx for posting!

    This was so quick and easy to whip up! I am glad that everyone else in my family are not big caramel corn eaters!! I made a 1/3 batch because I didn't want to eat 12 servings (because I knew I would sit with the bag and eat and eat!) The only problem I had was it didn't seem to thin out enough to coat all the popcorn evenly, maybe needed a little more butter. It may have been my fault as well, I used real butter (all I had) and I know the margarine has a high water content so that may thin out the sugar/butter mixture. Either way it was really good! Sweet, crunchy and a touch of saltiness. I also loved that it only had to bake for 15 minutes! Will make again! Made for Photo Tag.
