3 packages (3-1/2 ounces each) microwave popcorn
1 cup salted peanuts
1 cup salted roasted almonds
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3/4 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pecan halves
Pop popcorn according to manufacturer’s directions. Meanwhile, in a large heavy saucepan, combine the peanuts, almonds, brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, peanut butter and molasses. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and baking soda (mixture will foam). In a very large bowl, combine popcorn and pecans. Add hot syrup mixture and toss to coat. Spread onto greased baking sheets.
Bake at 250° for 1 hour or until dry, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from pans to waxed paper to cool. Break into clusters. Store in airtight containers or plastic bags. Yield: 6 quarts.
