Two Bags Microwave Popcorn, Popped. ( Discard all unpopped kernels )
1 -2 cups pecans, peanuts, or mixed nuts
1 cup Dried Cranberries
Spray a large shallow roasting pan lightly with non stick cooking spray and mix popcorn, nuts and dried cranberries. Set aside. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
1 cup butter
2 slightly packed Cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup white or brown sugar flavoured Karo
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla ( I use Madagascar Vanilla )
1/4 tsp Caramel flavoured LorAnn Oil
1/2 tsp baking soda
Melt butter in a 2 quart saucepan. Add sugar, syrup and salt.
Bring to a boil and continue to cook for 5 minutes
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, caramel flavoured LorAnn Oil and baking soda.
Pour over popcorn mix and stir well. Place in oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and continue to stir as mixture cools to keep from sticking together.
These delectable treats can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container.
They are a great idea for holiday gifts.
