I make caramel popcorn every year to give as gifts as Christmas. This year my recipe was MIA, so I came here to find another. This one looked the same so I read a few reviews and gave it a try. I reduced the butter by about 1/4 cup and otherwise followed the directions. After 15 minutes in the oven, I threw the whole batch out. The caramel was crumbly and the popcorn just tasted like popcorn and brown sugar. Yuck! I read a few more reviews, then tried again using the full cup of butter and *name brand* brown sugar. I think the generic sugar I used the first time really screwed up how the first batch turned out. My second try was a success! Smooth caramel and so, so tasty! This is exactly the caramel popcorn that my family waits for every Christmas. A tip that might be helpful... I buy the disposable lasagna trays that come in a pack of 2 for about $3. I split the popcorn up between the two pans and drizzle the caramel over the top. The high sides of these pans makes mixing a cinch.
