trail mix popcorn

Yield: About 10 cups


    1 (2.9 oz.) bag microwave popcorn, popped according to package instructions (or 6 oz. store-bought pre-popped popcorn)
    1 cup raisins
    1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped into 1/4-inch pieces
    1/2 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
    1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, walnuts, or peanuts
    1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a large bowl sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, add the popped popcorn along with the raisins, apricots and cranberries. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the sugar and corn syrup. Once melted, stir in the butter, nuts, sunflower seeds, and cinnamon until combined. Remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Carefully drizzle the melted sugar mixture over the popcorn, stirring constantly until all ingredients are fully combined and coated.
  4. Allow to cool completely before serving. Note, the popcorn will be a sticky treat.
