"Discovered this recipe a couple of years ago. I made it for a 4th of July gathering, and everyone loved it! I have made it several times since and it turns out great every time! I pop 3 bags of lightly salted microwave popcorn. The little bit of salt is wonderful with the sweet coating. Thanks for a great recipe!"
