Yummm, this looks delightful. I'm going to make some in the next day or two. Watch my spaces as I won't be posting for a few days. I'm going to be cooking and baking and I will post my pictures and recipes afterwards. I'm going to make this caramel popcorn and I'm not only going to eat it but I'm going to string it up and put it on the Christmas Tree! I've never done this before with popcorn so here's holding thumbs that it works!
