What's a party without popcorn? This recipe has a great maple flavor that candy-coats the popcorn. For added crunch there is a variety of nuts and you won't miss the hint of spice. I can eat my weight in this stuff.

Ingredients

  • 10 cups plain popcorn, popped
  • 2 cups mixed nuts, such as pecans, walnuts and almonds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Nonstick spray, for greasing
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup

Directions

Combine the popcorn, mixed nuts, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper in large serving bowl.

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray. 

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the maple syrup and continue cooking until the mixture reads 275 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes. 

Carefully pour the mixture over the popcorn and nuts. Toss, using a spoon that has been coated in nonstick spray, to coat the popcorn evenly with syrup. Allow the popcorn to cool before serving
