This was very yummy! I would suggest using lightly buttered tinfoil instead of the waxed paper though, as some of the paper stuck to my candy mixture and it was very difficult to peel off.

These are sooo decadent! And soooo easy to make! My only suggestion is to add a pinch of salt to to the recipe as I'm mostly tasting butter and sugar, but no salt although I used salted cashews.

These are great to make if you want the taste of nutty caramel popcorn without the hulls. I have made this recipe several times. I am making it again this Christmas. Thanks for the great recipe!
