    Erin Crable's Note:

    My mom made these every Halloween and they were always a neighborhood favorite. They are chewy with lots of flavor and so fun to eat! The caramel sauce won't set up unless it reaches the correct temperature, so be sure to allow it enough time to boil.

      These turned out wonderful! Of course, I ran out of light corn syrup while getting the ingredients assembled, so I substituted using 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar dissolved into 1/4 cup hot water (makes 1 cup of corn syrup, so I only needed half). Once I poured the caramel over the popcorn, I tossed in 3/4 cup of Spanish peanuts and a handful (or two!) of shredded coconut. I didn't make balls out of these, but rather once they popcorn was set, broke into pieces and put into a bowl. Delish!! I've never *made* caramel before, I, like most, have spent my time unwrapping caramels. This was very easy and will make again! Thanks for posting!
