My mom taught me how to make this back in the 60's. Then along came the microwave and made it much simpler. I put my popcorn and peanuts in a doubled brown paper grocery sack. When the caramel is cooked, I pour it in on top of the popcorn, use my long-handled wooden spoon to stir it into the popcorn, roll down the top of the sack and put it in the microwave. For my microwave, which is 1300 watts, I microwaved the mixture 2 minutes on high, stirred it and microwaved another 2 minutes. This time I just shook the sacks real well (using mitts so as not to get burnt on the hot sacks), put them back in the microwave for 1 minute. Then I just dumped the whole mess onto a clean, cut open to lay flat, brown grocery sack. When it was cool it came off the sack perfectly. One caution....don't microwave too long or it will burn but every microwave is a little different, especially if it is lower wattage so it may take a little longer.
