Lilo's Candy Popcorn Oven Style

Updated: Jan 18, 2023

Here’s a perfect fall recipe for your family. It’s a family favorite of ours created by my husband’s spicy grandmother, Lilo.

It’s so easy to make and it’s so good ! You won’t be able to stop eating it! It’s crispy, rich and buttery sweet but don’t you worry…it’s got pecans so it’s healthy! 😂

Lilo's Candy Popcorn

4 quarts popcorn

2 cups nuts (pecans or peanuts)

1 1/4 cups sugar

2/3 cup butter

2/3 cup Karo syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven 250 degrees. Pop popcorn and set aside. Mix sugar, butter and Karo syrup together and bring to a boil. Take off the heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Pour mixture over popcorn along with the nuts. Stir to coat. Pour onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
