I was searching for a snack that my family could munch on this evening while watching TV. I came across this yummy little treat on one of my favorite food blogs Picky Palate.
Sweet and Salty Butterscotch Candied Popcorn
1 3.3oz bag Kettle Corn popcorn, popped and all un-popped kernels removed
1 c. peanuts
1 c. butterscotch chips
6 T. butter
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1/3 c. corn syrup
¼ t. salt
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place popped popcorn and peanuts onto a large rimmed baking sheet that has been sprayed lightly with non stick cooking spray.
2. Place butterscotch chips, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a light boil. Remove from heat and pour evenly over popcorn and nuts. Gently stir to coat mixture over popcorn. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
3. Remove from oven and pour onto parchment paper to cool. Break into pieces and serve. Enjoy!
