DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Butter a large roasting pan.
  • Combine popped corn and nuts in the prepared pan, mixing well. Place in the oven while preparing the glaze.
  • In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, orange zest and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Boil for 4 minutes without stirring.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the vanilla and baking soda. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE SODA AS IT MAY MAKE THE SYRUP FOAM UP AND SPATTER A BIT!Gradually pour the glaze over the popped corn mixture, stirring to coat well.
  • Bake until dry; stirring occasionally, approximately 1 hour.
  • Remove from the oven. Using a metal spatula, free the popcorn from the bottom of the pan. Let cool completely in the pan.
  • Break into clumps. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
