Candied Vanilla Popcorn

Ingredients:

12 cups popped popcorn

1 cup roasted salted peanuts

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla powder (or 1 whole bean scraped)

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

4 oz. white chocolate, melted

Edible gold glaze 

 

Directions:

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine popcorn and peanuts on the tray and set aside. 

In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan combine the sugar, corn syrup and 1/2 cup water and stir. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat and boil until the sugar reaches 300 degrees. 

Remove the thermometer and take the pan off the heat. Add the vanilla, almond and salt and stir gently. Coat a spatula with non-stick spray and pour the syrup over the popcorn and peanuts in a steady stream. Use the spatula to toss it around, evenly coating the popcorn in the sugar mixture.
