This is great! I doubled the whole recipe (except the butter- I only used 1/2 cup) and thought that the amount of caramel/chocolate/nuts called for was perfect; all the kernels were covered pretty well. Based on other recipes, one cup of popcorn= one serving, so I used 8 cups of stove-popped popcorn and used the same stockpot to make and mix everything. I think it would have helped if I had kept the popcorn warm in the oven before mixing it- by the time I got to the chocolate and peanuts, the caramel was sticking. I baked in two deep aluminum roasting pans. This made FAR more than eight servings, more like 16!

I followed this recipe fairly strictly, except I used 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) rather than 2 sticks. I ran out of brown sugar so I used about 1/2 cup brown sugar , 1/2 cup regular white sugar, and it seemed to be no different. Go sparingly on the chocolate chips---I "eyeballed" it and ended up making the popcorn a little bit too chocolatey, and overcoming some of the caramel taste. Also, my popcorn started to burn after 45 minutes, so I didn't bake it the full hour.

An addicting, delicious recipe. I made it using 1 cup of popcorn seeds that I microwave-popped. Hint: REMOVE UNPOPPED KERNELS! Keep the roasting pan in the oven while melting the caramel sauce, then take it out and add the popped corn and sauce, this makes it easier to coat the popcorn evenly. Enjoy!
