Tried this last night. Turned out way better than expected!
Wasn't sure what to bake it in (per recipe) so I used cookie sheets with tin foil. Wife & I LOVED IT!!

This recipe turned out really well. I found it really easy to use my 16 qt stock pot to bake the cracker jacks in the oven. The stock pot was both deep enough and nice to have the extra room when I needed to stir.
