Whip up this easy (and patriotic) snack.

Makes: 9 servings

Prep: 25 mins

Bake: 40 mins

Ingredients
  • 8 cups air-popped popcorn
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted
  • 7 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and black pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees . In a large bowl, toss together the popcorn, peanuts and pumpkin seeds.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Whisk in the brown sugar and cayenne until bubbling and thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over the popcorn mixture; toss to coat. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Form small clumps of the popcorn mixture and bake until toasted, 40 minutes. Let cool completely.
