Sweet and Smoky Popcorn and Nut Mix Recipe



Ingredients:
5 Tbl butter, plus more for the baking sheet
8 C popped, unseasoned popcorn (about 1/3 C kernels)
2 C trail mix-fruit and nut
2/3 C dark brown sugar
1/4 C maple syrup
1 tsp ground chipotle powder
1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly butter 2 rimmed baking sheets. Place popcorn and nuts in a large bowl and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add sugar, maple syrup, chipotle and salt and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat.
3. Slowly drizzle syrup over popcorn and nuts, folding constantly to coat evenly. Place mixture on prepared baking sheets and bake about 30 minutes or until nuts and popcorn are golden, stirring several times and rotating baking sheets halfway through baking. Let cool completely before serving or packaging.

Factoid

Other common names for trail mix are 'gorp' and 'scroggin.' Generally, they refer to a blend of nuts, dried fruits, grains, and seeds. Why trail mix is so popular for people on the go is that it is high in calories (not empty calories, however) for a quick source of energy while supplying vitamins, minerals, and protein.
