Please, please, please listen to those of uf who are telling you that you either need to cut the popcorn in half or double the caramel. I had 4 big pans of popcorn sitting out and divided the caramel amongst them. It was quickly evident I was not going to have enough caramel, so I just had to stir as best I could and ended up picking out the areas that had enough caramel to shape into balls. I ended up with a roaster full of popcorn leftover with no caramel on it. This is a rather thick caramel also and the popcorn balls I ended up with had more like blobs of caramel scattered throughout rather than an even coating. I would give this recipe 4 stars for the flavor and chewiness of the caramel, but I was so mad when I was trying to shape the dry corn into balls that I felt I had to deduct. Don't just assume, like I did, that a recipe with such a high rating has no major faults. I ended up with 26 4" balls even with all the wasted popcorn, so something is not right with the amounts since it supposedly makes only 15 balls.
