This is sure to be a household favorite - Kids love this caramel corn treat. You can also dress it up for adults. Great gift idea, just but a batch in a nice tin lined with waxed paper!

1/2 cup of Honey
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
6 cups popped corn
1 cup shelled peanuts
For a fancier batch substitute cashews, mixed nuts, or macadamia nuts for the peanuts.

Preheat oven to 350
Heat honey and butter or margarine in a saucepan on medium heat until well blended
Set aside honey mixture to cool
Mix popcorn and peanuts (or other nuts) in a large bowl
Pour honey mixture over popcorn mixture, stirring as you pour in the honey; coat all the popcorn and nuts well
Spread popcorn mixture out in a single layer on a non-stick cookie sheet or shallow pan
Bake mixture 5-10 minutes. Check every 2 minutes, stirring mixture for even crisping. Watch carefully, depending on your oven, a few minutes too long could result in burning the mixture
Remove from oven when mixture is crisp. Allow to cool completely. Package in plastic bags, wax paper lined tins, or just serve it up to your guests!
