Cook Eat Delicious Rating: Once the caramel sauce is done you have to move fast so that it doesn’t get to firm before coating the popcorn. It also needs to be watched and stirred while baking so as not to burn. I bought unsalted natural popcorn bags and heated them up in the microwave and it worked just fine. So as not to get caramel sauce all over I bought a disposable large roaster pan from the store. It works perfectly to fit all the popcorn and you can just throw it out when done, easy cleanup. I can’t get over how delicious this popcorn is. It is better than any store bought stuff and is great as a snack, dessert, appetizer or even a sweet gift to friends! This is a saved easy recipe in my book.
