Graham Cracker-and-Pecan Praline Popcorn

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2000

  • Yield: 12 cups (serving size: 1/2 cup)


  • 10 cup popcorn (popped without salt or fat)
  • 2 cups honey-flavored bear-shaped graham crackers (such as Teddy Grahams)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light-colored corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine


Preheat oven to 325°.

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Spread mixture onto a jelly-roll pan lined with foil and coated with cooking spray.

Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cover and cook 1 minute. Uncover and cook, without stirring, until the candy thermometer registers 290° (about 5 minutes).

Drizzle the brown sugar mixture over popcorn mixture; toss to coat. Bake at 325° for 30 minutes, stirring once. Cool completely on a wire rack in pan, and break into large pieces.

Note: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
