Ingredients

Three 16-ounce bags microwave buttered popcorn, or 1 cup loose popcorn kernels, popped (about 20 cups)

1 1/2 cups salted roasted peanuts

4 cups sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup honey with the honeycomb, chopped

1 teaspoon baking soda

Directions

Special equipment:
candy thermometer
  1. Place the popcorn and peanuts in an extra-large bowl or on 2 silicone-lined baking sheets and set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, butter, cream and honey in a large soup pot or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
