Nutty Popcorn Snack Mix


  • 16 cups popped popcorn
  • 5 cups mini pretzel twists
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups candy corn or candy-coated chocolates


  1. Combine popcorn and pretzels in a large roasting pan; set aside. Combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt in a heavy medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 12 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a full boil.
  2. Continue cooking and stirring 4 to 6 minutes, until mixture reaches the soft-ball stage, or 234 to 243 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat, stir in baking soda and vanilla.
  3. Pour over popcorn and pretzels in pan; add peanuts. Stir until mixture is coated well. Bake at 200° for 20 minutes; stir. Bake for an additional 25 minutes. Immediately spoon onto wax paper, let cool completely. Break into pieces; store in an airtight container. Makes about 24 cups.
