Maple Walnut popcorn

IMAG0469

After going to a food exchange where someone made maple pecan popcorn(which I wasn’t able to trade for) I decided to attempt to replicate it. I had popcorn and maple syrup from my food share, but I didn’t have pecans so used walnuts instead. This is an extremely sweet and heavy snack but extremely good.

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups of popcorn NOTE: This is the yield from about 1/2 cup popcorn kernels. If you want to know how to pop your popcorn kernels on the stove click here or in the microwave click here
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Toss your popcorn and nuts together to combine.
  2. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper and evenly spread out the popcorn/nut mixture on the two trays.
  3. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter.
  4. Add maple syrup and salt and boil (still over medium heat),stirring occasionally. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until mixture is well combined, heated through and slightly thickened.IMAG0462
  5. Take off heat and stir in vanilla.
  6. Immediately pour over popcorn and quickly toss to coat. Allow to cool before eating.
  7. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
