White Chocolate Cashew Caramel Popcorn

White Chocolate Cashew Caramel Popcorn
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 quarts popped popcorn
1 cup cashew pieces
4 oz melted white chocolate (I use vanilla candy coating... or almond bark)


 Preheat oven to 250. 

Place popcorn  in a very large bowl.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat. 

Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour. At your 30 minute mark mix in your cashews. 

Remove from oven and drizzle melted white chocolate over the pieces. Let it completely before braking it into smaller pieces.
