Popcorn and Peanut Snack Mix
This honeyed snack mix has the same taste reminiscent of old-fashioned popcorn balls. This popcorn and peanut mix is much easier to make, so make a big bowl of this snack mix to munch on while your cheering on your favorite team! In fact, why not fill sandwich size or treat bags and hand them out to your son or daughters Little League team.
This recipe calls for 10 cups popped popcorn. You can do one of a few things; pop popcorn using an air popper or a deep pan with a cover, make microwave popcorn, or purchase a large bag of popcorn. For this recipe, we did the latter. We purchased a huge bag of popcorn from Valley Popcorn
