Pecans and almonds add nutty goodness to this crisp chewy mix. The way this tasty treat attracts snackers, you may need an umpire for the bowl.

"There is something wrong with this recipe. There is way too much "juice" for the amount of popcorn & nuts and it turns out totally soggy. I am thinking it should be baked after spreading on pans? Or possibly the butter mixture cooked longer, so it's hard crack stage? That would still be an awful lot of "stuff" for the dry ingredients.

If you want to try this, please not when you are planning to feed to company or give as gifts."
