This recipe calls for heatproof gloves, and I’m guessing most of you, like me, do not own any. I used my hands to break up the clumps of hot, caramel-coated popcorn. A spatula would work, too, but I managed to do this without burning myself. Do what you’re comfortable with. Placing the mixing bowl into the oven helps the caramel stay warm while you’re tossing the popcorn.
