Virginia (Ginger)'s notes for this recipe:
This recipe was given to my Mother from a dear, sweet family friend named Pauline. I make it at Christmas time to give to my neighbors and friends. They all love it and even request it. It is such a delicious snack!

Directions

1
Then beat with a wire whisk until it foams. Pour over the popcorn and nuts and stir until coated. Put in a large greased pan. (I spray with PAM). Cook for 1 hour at 250 degrees. Stir every 15 minutes while baking.
2
Store in an airtight container.
Note: This recipe may sound complicated but it is really easy to make and so delicious!

I'll try to add a picture later.
