By: Herald Staff Report,
The following recipe from the Hershey Co. makes homemade candy a snap.
8 cups popped popcorn (microwave reduced-fat butter flavor works fine)
2 cups miniature pretzels
¾ cup peanuts
1 8-ounce package Bits ‘O Brickle Toffee Bits (no chocolate added; toffee bits only)
½ cup light corn syrup
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Grease large roasting pan. Place popcorn, pretzels and peanuts in pan. Combine toffee bits and corn syrup in heavy medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until toffee is melted, about 12 minutes. Pour mixture over popcorn mixture in greased pan. Stir until coated. Bake 30 minutes, stirring frequently to distribute toffee coating and to keep it from sticking to the pan. Remove from oven. Stir every 2 minutes until slightly cooled, about 10 minutes. Cool. Store in airtight container in cool place.
Yield: Serves 12.
