  • Pecans or peanuts can be used in place of the almonds in this recipe.
  • Save prep time by using purchased popped popcorn.
  • Use a large saucepan to prepare the caramel; the baking soda will cause the mixture to foam up.
  • To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
