Awesome Autumn Treat

Carmel Pretzel Nut Popcorn
8 cups broken pretzels
20 cups popped popcorn
4 cups roasted peanuts
3 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place pretzels, popcorn and peanuts into a very large pan, bowl or brown paper bag and set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Cook, stirring to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar, until mixture comes to a boil. Once the mixture is at a full boil, continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in the salt, vanilla, and baking soda. The mixture will foam up when you add the soda, so use a long wooden spoon to stir. Immediately pour the sugar mixture over the popcorn , pretzels and peanuts in the pan or bag. Mix or shake until the mixture is evenly coated.
