Homemade Cracker Jacks

MollyGee | Aug 12, 200608:21 PM     15

Every time we go to a ballgame, the hubby buys Cracker Jacks and, though the kids love 'em, they are just so crummy compared to when I was a kid- they had lots of peanuts then and the prized were actually interesting...I've done an internet search and there are lots of recipes for homemade cracker jacks, but they're all so different. Some are baked, some are stovetop, some use honey, some use molasses (and then you break them apart w/ a spoon) etc.

Anyone make a good crackerjackslike caramel corn w/ peanuts that would survive a trip to (but not from) a ballgame?

Thanks! You're the best!!
