Holy moly! This is delicious! I am not a big caramel fan, but this popcorn is fabulous! It is light, with a crispy shell that is the perfect thickness to compliment the light and airy popcorn inside. I, like other reviewers, used a 1/2 lb (one stick) of butter. I also put the popcorn in a large turkey roasting pan, like someone suggested, and I can't imagine doing it another way. It made it really easy to stir the popcorn every 15 minutes. I wanted to experiment, so after the third stir, I added peanuts, I realized this was too late. I would suggest adding them to the caramel mixture before you add in the baking soda and vanilla. This is when you normally add peanuts to peanut brittle, and I think if I poured the syrup on with the nuts mixed in, they would have stuck. Once the popcorn was done baking, I took half of it and spread it out on parchment and then left the other half in the pan and threw in 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. I can't decide which version I like better. I think I am going to do this again (one half regular and one half chocolate) and let them cool, break them up and then mix them together so you can get a bite of each one! Thank you for a great recipe!
