I have been making this recipe for about 40 years. I got it from a 'farm cookbook'. If you are tired of picking hulls out of your teeth, try making it with OkeDoke popcorn puffs from the grocery snack isle. It is wonderful. NO hulls! Also, I find that if I put the puffs in the oven BEFORE I start the syrup, it makes it easier to coat the popcorn/puffs if they are hot. I pour it right out onto my clean countertop as soon as it comes out of the oven and it is easier to break up. Every year I use it for gifts for many and they all look forward to it. I made 2 batches yesterday and guess I will be making at least 2 more. I always get requests for the recipe. You do need to get it in a container soon after it is cooled or it will get sticky if it is in the open for very long. We love it in Michigan! I used to use margarine but some companies have changed their formula so now I use strictly BUTTER! After all, its the holidays and we treat ourselves with things we don't normally have.
