    this recipe was very easy to make, both prep and cooking time. the chile added a nice spiciness to the candy corn and went well with the maple flavor. i liked the fact that it needed to be baked only 15 minutes.

    I'd give the flavor of this 5 stars, tastes like crackerjacks with a kick. However, as I poured the syrup over the cooked popcorn it shrunk from 8 cups to about 2 cups. I'm not sure what i did wrong but I certainly did not get 16 servings. I will try making this again, it would be great on nuts too, as another reviewer mentioned.

    I made this today for a small gathering of friends and it was a big hit! I added 1 cup of pecan halves which went well with the maple flavor. I only used 1/4 tsp of the pepper to accommodate those who don't like spicy, and it gave it just a hint of heat. I'll use the full amount next time for just our family. Very quick and easy to make, and so much better for you than store bought caramel corn.

    This. Is. Awesome. Just the right amount of spiciness. I added pecans like the other review suggested- good idea.

    I've made this recipe and also the Peanut Butter Caramel Corn this week. I actually prefer this one! It's easier, and it turns out crunchy. The flavor is kind of addictive.

    Quick and easy to make. It only lasted two days in my house. I followed the recipe as written, and it was a bit spicy for me, but it was still addictive!

    AWFUL! I ended up losing it during the 2 minute cook time since it ended up smoking out the house at just over 1 minute and burned to a nasty molasses consistency before adhering to my stainless steel pot like cement! Still don't know if I can save the pot. I'd recommend letting it cook on a lower heat or for less time:(

    Great great flavor!!! The only hesitation I have towards it is how sticky it is and it sticks in your teeth. I brought it to the office and it was all eaten by the end of the day- it is delicious! I see some people had trouble with heating the syrup but I found it to be no trouble at all, just keep the heat low and it will thicken up nicely. Also, this will be featured in this year's Eat Smart Move More Maintain don't gain Holiday Challenge as a healthy holiday recipe!
