I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. It is sooo easy to make. My co-workers love this. One of them calls it "Crack in a bag" because it so addicting! Try it with dark corn syrup and no nuts, drizzled with melted chocolate almond bark. Yummy!

How to Make Snap-Crackle Popcorn and Nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.Pour popcorn and nuts into a large open roasting pan.(I use the disposable pans) Set aside.
  2. Prepare caramel coating: In heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, heat brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt to boiling; boil 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Pour hot sugar mixture over popped corn mixture, stirring to coat well. Bake popped corn mixture 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. Spoon caramel covered popcorn mixture into another large roasting pan or onto waxed paper to cool, stirring occasionally to separate. Store popcorn mixture in tightly covered containers to use up within 1 week.
