1 1/2 C brown sugar
1 1/2 C cashews
12 T margarine
6 T light corn syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
Bring brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup and cashews to a boil. When mixture boils, stop stirring. Cook for five minutes. Stir in soda and vanilla.
Pour over popcorn and put in 250 degree oven for an hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
Spread out on waxed paper to cool. Break up and eat. It’s really (REALLY!) good with coffee.
As I said, this really isn’t my recipe. (I’m always shocked at people who share a recipe as if it’s theirs. Does anyone really create a recipe from scratch?)
This recipe came from my friend Joy and my sweet friend/neighbor/Heavenly Citizen Suezan. They have given my many, many hours of happiness with this corn, and I thank them for sharing their recipes with me.
I’ve enjoyed it for years (summer, winter, spring, AND fall) and now I’m sharing with you!
