Here is the recipe:
12 cups of Popped Popcorn
(about 1/2 Cup of kernels)
1 cup nuts…your choice
cashews, almonds, peanuts, pecans
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1/2 Cup Karo Syrup
a pinch of salt
1 stick or cube of Real Butter
I used Salted butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
vanilla wafers, chips or Almond Bark
drizzle over the top of popcorn
Preheat oven to 250 degrees
Place popcorn and nuts if desired, in a large bowl and set aside. In microwave safe bowl, Measure your brown sugar, and throw in a pinch of salt. I used 1/4 tsp for a double recipe. Chop butter into chunks and place on top of sugar mixture. Pour Karo Syrup over the top of everything. Microwave on high for 30 seconds and then stir to combine. Return to microwave and heat for 2 minutes more. Remove and stir and then return to microwave for 2 minutes more, until hot and bubbly.
The butter will combine well with ingredients by now.
Remove from the microwave and add in vanilla, cinnamon (opt), and baking soda. Stir to combine. The mixture will foam and rise. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and nuts and stir very well, until everything is well coated.
Spread popcorn mixture onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes stirring every 5 minutes….if you want it slightly chewy. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring every five minutes…..if you want your popcorn crunchy!
Melt your Vanilla chips, wafers or Almond Bark (about 4 oz)….and drizzle over popcorn. Let cool, until chocolate has set. Break into chunks and enjoy.
