Serves: 3 Quarts
  • 2 quarts organic popped popcorn
  • 1½ cups pecan halves
  • ½ cup almonds
  • 1⅓ cups sugar
  • 1 cup dairy-free margarine
  • ½ cup light corn syrup or honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  1. Line a large, rimmed 12x17-inch baking pan with foil and lightly grease.
  2. Lightly grease a large glass or metal bowl and add the popcorn and nuts.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, margarine and corn syrup or honey. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil until the temperature on a candy thermometer reaches 290°F (about 15 minutes). Remove the candy thermometer and stir in the vanilla. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and nuts and quickly stir to coat well.
  4. Spread the popcorn mixture in an even layer on prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with the sea salt and allow to cool completely.
  5. Break into pieces to serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
