      Popcorn Starlets


      1 1/2 quarts popped Jolly Time® popcorn
      1 (14 ounce) bag caramels, unwrapped
      3 tablespoons half-and-half
      1 tablespoon butter or margarine
      1 teaspoon rum flavoring
      About 48 pecan halves
      1/2 cup canned chocolate fudge frosting

      Place popped popcorn in a large bowl.
      In medium saucepan over low heat, heat caramels, half and half and butter until caramels are melted, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in rum flavoring.
      Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and toss to coat well. Arrange pecan halves in groups of 3 on a greased baking sheet. Working quickly, spoon heaping tablespoonful of popcorn mixture onto the center of each pecan group.
      Spoon frosting into a small saucepan; place over low heat until softened. Spoon over each mound of popcorn.
      Store in a cool place.

      Makes about 16.
