Paul's Picture Show Popcorn Crunch
MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: Mailady700
Recipe Category: Snacks
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
1 cup whole almonds
1 cup pecan halves
1 cup cashews or walnuts
1 bag Newman's Own Oldstyle Picture Show Microwave Popcorn (about 10 cups) or your favorite
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1-1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Coat a large heatproof mixing bowl (16 cups or larger) and a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with margarine or nonstick cooking spray.
In another 15 x 10-inch baking pan, combine the almonds, pecans, and cashews
and toast for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pan from the oven
and cool the nuts to room temperature.
Pop the popcorn following the package directions. Pour the popcorn into the
prepared bowl. Add the nuts and mix well.
Melt the margarine and butter in a heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.
Add the sugar, corn syrup, and 1/4 cup of water. Mix well and stir often.
Continue to cool over medium-high heat until it reaches 275 degree on a candy
thermometer. Remove the pan from the heat and slowly stir in the vanilla
extract. (Stir carefully because the vanilla extract will spatter when added
to the hot syrup.)
Pour the hot syrup over the popcorn-nut mixture and mix until evenly coated.
Immediately pour the popcorn into the prepared baking pan. Let cool for one
hour. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
