heat for 3 minutes, stirring every minute until mixture comes to a boil. Gradually
stir caramel sauce into popcorn mixture until well coated.
Return mixture to stove and cook on high 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Cool
slightly. Onto wax paper, spoon caramel-coated popcorn in small clusters. Cool completely.
