"While I wouldn't exactly call this a "quick" recipe, it is definitely worth the time. It's absolutely delicious. I made it for Christmas gifts for my neighbors and they asked for the recipe. I used three bags of microwave popcorn and it worked out well. Also, be sure you pour the syrup fast or it will harden up on you in the pan and you can't re-heat it."
