Our New Favorite Snack...

I recently read this post for a popcorn snack.  We've been eatting our share of popcorn lately, it's our favorite snack.  But this sweet treat is especially terrific.  Although the recipe as written is good, I've adjusted it slightly and I want to share it with you:

Popcorn Treat

1 bag microwave popcorn (not the small individual size)

1/4 C butter

1/2 C honey

1/4 C or more of slivered almond

Instructions:  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  While it's preheating, spread almonds on a baking sheet and place in the oven to toast.  Keep an eye on them because they burn quickly.  Pop popcorn in the microwave and then pour into a large bowl.  (Our favorite is Pop Secret Homestyle)  While the popcorn is popping, melt the butter and honey in a saucepan on top of the stove. Bring that mixture to a boil.  When the almonds are lightly browned, sprinkle them over the popcorn.  Then slowly pour the honey butter mixture over the popcorn and nuts.  Stir well to ensure that it's all coated.  Place aluminum foil on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray.  Pour popcorn mixture onto baking sheet and spread out across the pan.  Bake in the 400 degree oven for 5-10 minutes.  Again, watch it, it burns quickly!

This feeds the four of us with no leftovers.  And we devour it.
