Dangerously addictive. Cheap Ethnic Eatz posted this fabulous recipe. This one is definitely on my make again list....again and again. Nom!
I had a little less coverage with the coating since I had about 6 cups of popcorn instead of 4, but I was still a happy camper. I was noshing away when I realized I was eating whole grain peppered with heart healthy nuts...clearly this should be classified as a health food right? Pay no attention to the candy coating....whole grain trumps all!
My trolling through the avalanche of fabulous bookmarked recipes continues.
1 bag microwave popcorn
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup peanuts
Spread popped popcorn on a baking sheet and add peanuts on top.
In heavy saucepan mix sugar, butter and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Continue cooking for 5 minutes at medium heat without stirring. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Pour over popcorn and peanuts and stir to coat quickly.
Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour stirring several times. Cool, break apart and store.
