Pecan Caramel Popcorn Mix

I made this for a Christmas snack and it was delicious. It would be equally as good for Super Bowl! I can’t remember where I found the recipe. I had printed it off and unfortunately the print out didn’t have an identifying website. Veggie Hubby loved it as well, in fact I mixed this popcorn mix in with the other goodies in my cookies boxes and Veggie Hubby picked it all out.

You do need to set aside a time where you will be at home for a little while because it takes an hour in the oven to make this. Its well worth the time 🙂
