Yum. Say it again because it's worth saying at least twice. Yum-yum. This popcorn is fantastic! I made it the other night on a whim while trying to figure out something different I could make for a snack for Jay's lunch.
It is not caramel corn because it's not a thick chewy coating. The maple-sugar-syrup bakes into the popcorn and makes it absolutely crunchy and delicious. It's the perfect blend of sweet and salty. I made 2 small changes - I used granulated sugar rather than raw sugar and I added salted peanuts.
