This recipe is great except it doesn't mention what turns out to be the most important part of making caramel corn. After making a first batch with clumps of caramel mixed in with plain parts with no caramel, a woman at work clued me it to the critical missing step! Once you have mixed the caramel in with the popcorn, pretzels, and nuts, put small batches in a PAM-sprayed microwave-safe bowl and put in the microwave on high for two to three minutes total, stopping after each minute to stir the mixture. The caramel will completely coat the popcorn and stuff, yielding that great texture similar to cracker jacks. Other than that missing tip (which I can't believe wasn't in any reviews that I saw), this recipe works great! The paper bag idea is definitely a keeper!
