Difficulty

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

6 quarts

Ingredients

6 quarts popped popcorn

3 cups pecan halves

1 cup butter (no substitutes)

2 cups brown sugar

1/2 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Cardamom

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Allspice

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Ginger

1/8 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Cloves

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 250°F.

Pour popcorn and pecans into large roaster or two rimmed baking sheets that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat.  Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low and boil for 5 minutes without stirring.

While caramel is cooking, combine baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, ginger and cloves in a small bowl.  After caramel has boiled for 5 minutes, remove from heat and stir in spice mixture and vanilla (mixture will foam up).  Carefully pour caramel over popcorn and stir to coat well.

Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and spread on parchment or waxed paper.  Cool completely; store in a tightly covered container.
