Omg, my old recipe took two hours with the same outcome, how can I get that time back?

Just made it. Yummo. I think my grandpa used to make caramel popcorn this same way! Genius.

This is my favorite!!! I use lite syrup & add 1 tsp vanilla. Be SURE to spray your paper bag well with cooking spray to prevent sticking & SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE! That is the trick. I'm always being asked to bring it and for the recipe. Always share!
