This has an excellent taste! I have two suggestions though: (1) Try not to make this during humid weather so that the caramel won't get as hard, and (2) You might spread this out on wax paper after taking out of the oven (while still pliable) so it won't clump together. I will definately make this again !!!
This recipe was fine with adjustments. When mixing it I saw that I didn't have nearly enough caramel mix, but when I quickly whipped up another batch to add to the rest it was fine. I did have wax paper ready, sprayed with cooking spray, to dump it on when it cam out of the oven. I had a bad experience another time when the whole batch stuck completely in the roasting pan when I let it cool.
Brought this to a get together. It was the first thing the guests went, for and didn't stop until it was finished!
Everyone at the birthday party (both adults & children) loved it. Some suggested substituting Spanish peanuts for the pecans and pretzel nuggets for the twists. And it does stick to your teeth a little bit but all in all, I will definitely make this for future get-togethers!
There is so much popcorn that I didn't have a big enough bowl or pan to mix in. Also the caramel sticks to your teeth. Maybe I didn't cook long enough or too long?? Otherwise, declicious.
I've been making this recipe for years as a holiday gift for teachers. I would often get notes from teacher saying that they where going to take it home to their family, but ended up eating all themselves before getting home. I also like to double he caramel mixture.
Everyone who has ate this has loved it! I have made this for years, so much so, I had to find the recipe again to reprint it! If you let your caramel set up in your pan, just warm it back up in the oven to get it out on wax paper. Be sure you sperate it before it cools.
The caramel in this recipe is so good. I substituted the popcorn for Chex. I guessed how much 1 cup of unpopped popcorn would make (about 3 cups) and put in Corn Chex instead. I left out the pretzels, but kept in the pecans. It was so good. I couldn't stop eating it. Very delicious recipe!
