  • Makes 8-10 large cups or 16-20 small cups

You’ll need:

  • 150 g popcorn (unpopped) or 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 120 g (1 cup) peanuts or cashew nuts
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) sea salt
  • 250 g butter

Do this:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
  2. Spread the popcorn and nuts over a large baking tray and sprinkle with salt.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat, stir the butter, brown and white sugar and golden syrup together until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Increase the heat slightly and continue stirring until the mixture starts to boil. Stop stirring and gently boil for 4 minutes.
  5. Drizzle the hot caramel over the popcorn and nuts. Use two wooden spoons to toss the mixture and make sure the popcorn and nuts are evenly coated.
  6. Pop into the oven for 20 minutes, tossing the popcorn every 5 minutes. Transfer to a cold, clean silicone baking mat or lined baking tray to stop the cooking process. Leave to cool.
