Ingredients:
10 cups plain popcorn, popped
2 cups mixed nuts, such as pecans, walnuts and almonds
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Nonstick spray, for greasing
1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup

Directions:
Combine the popcorn, mixed nuts, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper in a large serving bowl.

Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the maple syrup and continue cooking until the mixture reads 275 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 15 minutes.

Carefully pour the mixture over the popcorn and nuts. Toss, using a spoon that has been coated in nonstick spray, to coat the popcorn evenly with syrup. Allow the popcorn to cool before serving.

Total time:
35 minutes
