Sticky popcorn! YUM!

Oh how I love sticky popcorn! I was in a mood for this delicious treat, so I made a batch. I have some friends coming over tomorrow night to scrap and I thought I'd share some, but my family is eating it pretty darn fast. I got this recipe from my good friend Paula and I thought I'd pass it on to you to enjoy!

Sticky Popcorn
3/4 cup unpopped popcorn
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2 cups cashews
1 cup (or more) reese's pieces (or M&M's)
1 cup butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Pop corn in an air popper, sift out all the unpopped kernels with your fingers. (this is an important step. I forgot once and we all hurt our teeth) In a very large bowl pour nuts and marshmallows over popcorn, mix around, set aside. In a medium sauce pan melt butter, sugar, corn syrup,and salt. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir in and quickly pour over popcorn mixture. Mix and fold together until well coated then add in the reese's pieces or M&M's. I happen to prefer the reese's pieces. YUM! :o)
