Nutted Popcorn Snack and Amazing Grace Christmas Light Show

8 cups popped popcorn

2 cups pecan halves

1 cup whole unblanched almonds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 250° F. Combine the popcorn, pecans, almonds, pumpkin seeds, chili powder, and cinnamon on 1 or 2 large baking sheets and place in the oven to warm through. Meanwhile, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a medium saucepan and heat to boiling. Without stirring, cook over medium-high heat about 10 minutes or until the syrup turns a rich brown and a few drops of it form stiff threads in a cup of cold water. Stir in the vanilla. Remove baking sheet from oven and pour the syrup over the popcorn. Toss quickly with a spoon. Cool and break into pieces.

  1. Sweet and salty is a great combination! This sounds like caramel corn on steriods! :)
