Baked Maple Popcorn, Gratifying Morsels

  This stuff was Good! We could not stop eating it. The crunch was just right and it was just sweet enough with the added maple syrup and maple sugar.Also, it is good for you. Great snack for a movie or maybe even a Super Bowl Game!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup butter

3/4 - 1 cup maple sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 cup popping corn

  Directions: Heat oven to 250 degrees. Cook popcorn according to package directions. Put popped corn in a slightly buttered bowl. In a saucepan, melt butter, add maple syrup, maple sugar and salt. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour gradually over popped corn and mix well. Turn into large roasting pan, bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool. I would imagine added pecans or peanuts to the popcorn would be great. Have not tried that yet. Enjoy!Maple-pecan-popcorn
