  • 1 cup whole unblanched almonds, toasted
  • 1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 cup) equals 666 calories, 45 g fat (16 g saturated fat), 61 mg cholesterol, 476 mg sodium, 65 g carbohydrate, 5 g fiber, 7 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine popcorn and nuts. In a small heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and cream of tartar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring, over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 300°-310° (hard-crack stage).
  2. Remove from the heat; quickly stir in baking soda and extract until mixture is light and foamy. Immediately pour over popcorn mixture; toss gently. Spread into two greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans. Press gently to flatten. Cool completely. Break into pieces. Yield: about 2 quarts.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
