Popcorn Pretzel Bars

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 12 cups plain popped popcorn (from 1/2 cup kernels or 2 microwave packages)
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped small salted pretzels
  • 1 cup toasted almonds, chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup Spirits & Spice White Chocolate Ancho Sugar

Use nonstick cooking spray to coat a 9 x 13″ baking dish.  Toss together popcorn, almonds and pretzels in a large bowl.  In a medium saucepan, bring sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup water to a boil over medium high.  Boil without disturbing until mixture is amber in color (about 8-12 minutes).  Remove pan from heat and slowly pour in cream (mixture will sputter).  Immediately add marshmallows and stir until melted.

Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and pretzels and quickly stir with a rubber spatula to coat.  Transfer mixture to dish and use dampened hands to press the mixture into the pan.  Sprinkle with a heavy dose of kosher salt and the White Chocolate Ancho Sugar.  Let cool completely then cut into bars and enjoy!
