This is very good! We tried it with brown sugar and really liked it that way too. I prefer to bake mine at 250 for a while so it is more crisp but my husband likes it chewy!

Nice,simple, easy to make recipe. I added food coloring to celebrate a holiday. Not too sweet, just right.

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!

This is a wonderful recipe for the most perfect, tasty and delicious vanilla popcorn. I had this once when I was younger and never found it again. I made this and it truly was just like I'd had in the past. I'll be making this again and again and again!
