5 quarts popped popcorn
2 cups roasted shelled Virginia-type peanuts
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Place popped corn and peanuts in a large shallow 18 × 12 × 2-inch baking pan; keep warm in a 250 degrees F oven.

Meanwhile, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan; cook and stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and cook to firm ball stage (248 degrees F on candy thermometer). Remove from heat and stir in baking soda.

Remove popped corn and peanuts from oven; immediately pour a steady stream of syrup over popped corn and peanuts. Mix well. Return to oven for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
So good, it hard to stop eating!!
Used two bags of micro-popcorn and one can of peanuts, worked out
perfect!! Recommend using size
pan called for, mind was alittle
smaller which made it harder to
stir, but otherwise an easy recipe.
