You love popcorn, maple, almonds, and cashews, right? Put them all together and you have a party in a bowl! Add some spice or keep it kid friendly and leave the spice out. Better yet, make a batch of both! A great treat paired w/ your favorite beverage. It's popcorn all dressed up for the party!

This popcorn is sensational! First, you taste the sweetness from the maple syrup. But then the cayenne adds a bit of heat. It's a bit spicy, but you'll find yourself going in for one more handful... a lot. Great for a party or package it during the holidays for a nice hostess gift. It's so good. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Spiced Maple Popcorn With Almonds and Cashews

Step-by-Step

  1. Stir nuts and currants/cranberries into popcorn. Bring sugar, maple syrup, and remaining ingredients to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil, remove from heat and let cool for 1 minute.
  2. Pour the hot, sugary, maple goodness over the popped corn. Toss to coat. Spread the popcorn onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Let cool and enjoy some sweet and spicy popcorn yumminess!

    NOTE: Break up any popcorn clumps before it cools. The longer it sits prior to serving the less sticky it will be.
