My mother used to make caramel popcorn for us kids on special occasions, except she made it in the oven and it took FOREVER! This replicates the old fashioned hardened caramel coated popcorn. She got her first Amana "Radarange" and this recipe from a lady named Pat Tyner at church and our lives were forever changed... yummy caramel popcorn that was easy for mom and no waiting for us impatient, whiny kids. We've been making this recipe for many, MANY years. Posting the original recipe for safe keeping. I've added a few updates... feel free to do the same!
