One last Christmas Gift!

Okay I found one more picture of things that I made for Christmas, so I had to share with you guys.  This was so fast and easy to do, and I have to say this caramel popcorn is absolutely to die for.  I made two huge roasting pan batches in my oven and was so surprised that it only made about 3.5 large bags of finished product.  We gave 3 bags to the neighbors and ate the half bag in no time at all!  This kicks the tail of any tinned popcorn I have ever eaten!  Next time I will make a double or triple batch so I can share the love.

Here’s what the finished product looked like:
