  • Ingredients

    ½ cup popcorn kernels (125 mL)

    4 tsp canola oil (20 mL)

    1 cup pecan halves, chopped (250 mL)

    ½ cup non-hydrogenated canola margarine (125 mL)

    1 cup brown sugar, packed (250 mL)

    ¼ cup corn syrup (60 mL)

    1 Tbsp ground cinnamon (15 mL)

    1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)

    ½ tsp baking soda (2 mL)

  • Directions
    1. In a large saucepan, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add popcorn kernels. Place lid on and let kernels cook, shaking occasionally to prevent burning. Allow steam to escape while popping and when the popping slows to 3 to 5 seconds between pops, remove pan from burner. Place popcorn in large bowl with chopped pecans and set aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
    3. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine margarine, brown sugar, syrup, and cinnamon. Stir continuously until mixture reaches a boil, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and baking soda and stir to combine.
    4. Pour caramel sauce over popcorn and pecans and stir well to coat. Divide popcorn between 2 baking sheets. Place one baking sheet in oven for 10 minutes. Remove and stir popcorn, place back in oven for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack. Repeat with other baking sheet.
    5. Allow popcorn to cool and harden. Break apart any large clusters.
    6. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
