My husband and I really loved this. It's so simple! I used real butter rather than margarine, and did not cook as long in the microwave, as some said theirs burnt, and I do think that is the microwave. I just eyeballed it (well, smelled mostly). I think I did a minute and a half, a minute after the stir, and then 45 seconds after the coating. Also I used two bags of light microwave
popcorn, and this was enough for both, in my opinion. (Used light because I've been trying to use up a box.)
I did not have a paper bag, so I coated and re-cooked in a large flat rubbermaid container, like the kind you carry cupcakes in, instead of the plastic bag. I coated, put the lid on, and flipped upside-down and back a few times. I do think that it is imperative that you spread it out and let it cool because it will harden at this time.
Agree with another reviewer: don't skip the baking soda. You definitely need it. Also with another reviewer: dump out your popcorn and then pick it up and put it back in so that you get rid of the kernels. They will stick into the caramel corn and you will bite right into them if you don't. So glad someone mentioned this!
Thanks for this recipe! It's going to be a great addition to our family movie night!
