  1. 4 quarts popped popcorn
  2. 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
  3. 1-1/3 cups sugar
  4. 1-1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  5. 1 cup dark corn syrup
  6. 1/2 cup water
  7. 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1-1/2 cups candy corn
  1. Place popcorn and peanuts in large buttered heat-proof containers or bowls; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, corn syrup, water, butter and salt. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 285° (soft-crack stage), stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour over popcorn mixture; stir gently to coat. Stir in candy corn. Drop into bite-size pieces onto waxed paper. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 quarts.
