Chocolate Popcorn with Almonds

(cooking time: 2 hr 15 min; 25 servings)

  • White sugar – 1 cup
  • Light corn syrup – 1 cup
  • Butter – ½ cup
  • Cocoa powder – ¼ cup
  • Salt – 2 tsps
  • Unsalted popped popcorn – 25 cups
  • Almonds – 3 cups, roasted, salted
  • Place popcorn and almonds into a very large bowl; mix until well combined. While preheating oven to 200°F/95°C, mix sugar with cocoa powder and salt in a saucepan. Add corn syrup, mix until well combined. Heat the saucepan over medium-low heat stirring constantly. When the mixture begins to simmer and thickens, remove from heat.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture over the popcorn and almond mixture; stir to coat. Transfer popcorn and almonds to several baking sheets, spread in one layer.
  • Bake until dry (a little less than an hour); stir three times to let dry on all sides. Remove from oven; let cool on baking sheets, transfer to sealed gift containers.
