- 8 cups popped popcorn
- 2 cups mixed nuts
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon each salt & baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Arrange the popcorn and mixed nuts in a well oiled 9″ by 13″ pan. Get out a 2 quart sauce pan and combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt over low heat. After the butter melts, cook without stirring for 3 minutes. It should be bubbling gently during the 3 minutes. Stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Quickly pour this over the pan of popcorn. Mix gently to coat the popcorn evenly. Bake the pan at 300 degrees for about 15 minutes. Break it up into pieces and serve. This stuff is so good that it doesn’t last long, but if you do end up with leftovers, store them in a tightly sealed container, or bag. It is good tucked into lunch boxes too.
You will never buy Poppycock again, I promise!
