Preheat oven to 300*

Make 1 batch of Kelly’s popcorn, but don’t add butter or salt on top when it’s done.
Toss in 1/2 c. crispy nuts, if desired
Put 1/3 c. butter, 1/2 c. palm or coconut sugar (or other natural sugar) and 1/4 c. real maple syrup in a small saucepan. Add a pinch of sea salt.
Heat the mixture on medium high. Be sure to keep stirring. Bring to a boil and allow it to boil for 2 minutes, without letting it burn!
Pour over the popcorn. Using a large wooden spoon, gently stir the popcorn until all of the pieces are coated.
Spread the popcorn onto a buttered cookie sheet.
Bake for about 15 minutes.
Store leftovers in an airtight container.
Enjoy!UPDATE:try this recipe that is just as good but MUCH easier:Kettle Corn!

Line the bottom of a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Rub the paper with a stick of butter to thoroughly grease the entire surface area.

Combine the popcorn and the peanuts in a large mixing bowl. Toss with your hands to ensure an even mixture. Set the bowl aside.


Combine the sugar, the molasses, and the honey in a large saucepan. Add the water and the one tablespoon of butter. Stir a few times to combine as much as possible.

Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan, and place the pan on the stove on medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches 250 degrees F, about 8 to 10 minutes. Do not stir while the popcorn is cooking.

Remove the pan from the stove, and stir in the baking soda. The mixture will begin to foam, but the foaming will cease in a few moments.

Once the foaming has stopped, whisk for a second or two, wait an additional five seconds, and then quickly pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and peanut mixture. Toss to evenly distribute the caramel mixture.

Pour the caramel corn mixture onto the parchment-lined cookie sheet, and spread it evenly using a spatula. Allow the caramel corn to cool for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it reaches room temperature.

Coloured popcorn.
1 cup sugar, 4 tbsp water, few drops food colouring & essence of choice. Boil rapidly for 1 min. Add popped corn & stir well to coat. Hint: Cook syrup in large stock pot. I use raspberry essence, orange, lemon, pineapple & caramel. All really yummy. I halve the recipe to make lots of varieties.
