1 tablespoon butter

4 cups Popped Corn, recipe follows

1/2 cup toasted pecans

1/2 cup toasted cashews

Directions

  1. Place sugar in a saucepan. Pour water around the sides of the pan. Make an X with your finger across the sugar. Cook over medium-high heat, swirling the pan, until the mixture turns a caramel color. Remove from the heat, add the butter carefully as it will bubble up, add popped corn, and toasted nuts. Pour onto a silicone baking mat or foil lined cookie sheet. Break into clusters while still warm.
