Crunchy and Sweet

I made this caramel popcorn last week for my sister and her husband as a housewarming gift.  It was so incredible.  Clean-up was less than fun, but it was oh, so worth it.  I woke up this morning thinking about this popcorn.  My kids would have eaten a gallon of it if I had let them.  I'm sure it would be wonderful with some nuts added in, but the recipe was so tasty as written that I just didn't see the need.  I think I'll be taking this to the very next party we attend!

I've made caramel popcorn before, using a couple of different recipes, but had less than stellar results each time.  The only thing that convinced me to try once more was my daughter begging me to make some.  I'm so glad I did, because this recipe was simple and wonderful.

okay, I am like a pavlovian dog when it comes to carmel popcorn. I simply must try this recipe. Exactly how much less than fun was the clean up though???

Not really all that bad. I baked it in one huge baking pan, which really just needed a good soaking to help it come clean. Thinking about it is making me need another fix. I must be like the pavlovian dog, too. I'm starting to drool!
