This is an approximate recipe from The Diet Rebel’s Cookbook. {We have enjoyed trying their dessert recipes for special occasions!} This baked popcorn is simple but it does take a little time to bake and you need to stir it at intervals. Thank heaven for a loud timer! Pop three batches of corn in your air popper. Mix 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup black strap molasses, 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup sucanat and 1/2 tsp salt in a sauce pan and let it boil for 4-5 minutes. Take it from the heat and stir in 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp baking soda. Pour over popcorn and add a few handfuls of Spanish peanuts and stir until each piece is fairly evenly coated. Then bake on cookie sheets in a 250 degree oven, stirring every 20 minutes or so for about an hour. When it finishes baking and you pour it into a bowl, it gets dry and crispy. You’ll love the flavor if you like Cracker Jack! I hope you all had a good day today! It is fun to create memories isn’t it? Be well!
Love, Jacque
