I was a little embarrassed to post this recipe last year from the results I got then so I’ve held on to it. It comes as a special request by a friend who thought it was to die for last year. It is good, but it just soaked up the popcorn into little pieces. I did a little more research on it and some trial and error found that letting it cool to warm/room temperature before pouring it on the popcorn really changed the outcome. I also let the mixture thicken up so it took longer then 3 minutes of boiling to do the trick.
