  • Unwrap and chop the caramels into bite size bits and set aside.  Rinse hands with warm water to remove stickiness.
  • Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and set aside. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in the sugar until it melts. Stir in the corn syrup, followed by the apple gelatin mix. Bring the mixture to a boil over the lowest possible heat setting. Stirring frequently, allow the mixture to boil for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and pour half over the popcorn. Toss the popcorn, then add the remainder of the mixture, and toss the popcorn again. Spread the popcorn on cookie sheet, sprinkle the caramel bits on top and bake for 15 minutes.

  • Let the popcorn cool for 10 minutes and toss again. The popcorn will stick together as it cools. Break apart any clumps and continue to toss, as needed, to prevent the candy coating from settling to the bottom of the pan.  Rinse with warm hands to remove stickiness.
