Ingredients

  • 10 cups of popped popcorn
  • 2 cups of pretzels
  • 1 cup of mixed nuts
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup of corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250°F (120°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the popcorn, pretzels, and mixed nuts. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and corn syrup, stirring until smooth.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 5 minutes without stirring.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and baking soda. The mixture will bubble up, so be careful.
  6. Pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn mixture and toss gently to coat evenly.
  7. Transfer the coated mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out in a single layer.
  8. Bake at 250°F (120°C) for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir the mixture.
  9. Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven and let the caramel snack mix cool completely on the baking sheet.
  11. Once cooled, break the mixture into smaller clusters and serve. Enjoy!
