From Rachel Ray...Pecan Pie Popcorn
I had some free time last night to begin reading my newest edition of EveryDay with Rachel Ray. This recipe sounded SO good that I wanted to share with those of you who may not read her magazine. Also, as I was reading, I kept thinking this would be wonderful packaged up and given as gifts for teachers, neighbors, the bus driver, etc. Another idea would be to include this treat as part of a gift basket with the theme of "A night in" or something along those lines---include some DVD's or board games that your recipient(s) would love as well as other snacks and hot cocoa mix, a snuggle throw....I could go on, but use YOUR imagination and have fun with it!
Pecan Pie Popcorn
1/2 C maple syrup
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 stick butter
1/4 tsp. salt
7 cups popped pocorn
3/4 C chopped pecans
In pan, cook syrup and sugar over medium heat, whisking, 5 minutes. Whisk in butter and salt until thickened, 5 minutes. Mix popcorn, nuts and maple butter on parchment lined sheet. Spread evenly; bake at 250 degrees for 20 minutes.
Serves 8 (really??? Not in THIS house!)
