- 3 tablespoons simple syrup
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 8 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup peanuts (optional)
- Combing brown sugar, butter, simple syrup, and salt over low heat until butter is melted. Cook WITHOUT stirring for 3 minutes. Add baking soda and vanilla. Pour onto popcorn and peanuts and mix until evenly coated. Bake 15 minutes at 300 degrees. Break into chunks.
This was very easy to make and everyone loved them. I just used plain bag popcorn. I used 2 bags, upped the brown sugar to 1 cup, butter to 1/3 cup, 4 tbsp corn syrup and a little more vanilla. I split the batch in half and did half of it with peanuts and half with cashews. They are very good. Next time I think I will lower the oven temp and cook a little longer stirring during the cooking time. They almost burned on the bottom. The second batch I took out 1 minute early but they were still a little gooey(but yummy). I will probably make these for Christmas goodies this year.
