Sweet 'n' Nutty Popcorn

Sweet 'n' Nutty Popcorn
Yield: 12 cups Prep 5 mins Cook 5 mins


  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 cups wheat cereal squares
  • 1 cup salted cashews
  • 1 cup golden raisins

Make It

1. Combine sugar, butter, water and cinnamon in a large heavy pot (at least 5-1/2 quart). Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; continue to cook until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture becomes syrupy, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove pot from heat.

2. Add the popcorn, cereal, cashews and raisins to the pot; stir quickly to coat all ingredients evenly with the sugar mixture. Turn coated popcorn out in single layer onto 1 or 2 large baking sheets lined with waxed paper or parchment paper. Break up any lumps with your hands. Let popcorn mixture cool for about 10 minutes. Makes 12 cups snack mix.
