Directions

Toss the pecans and popcorn in a large bowl. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil, then lightly oil the foil and a wooden spoon. Melt the butter in a 1- to 1 ½-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the syrup and salt, then boil, without stirring, until the mixture registers 300 degrees on a candy thermometer, 15-20 minutes.

Pour the syrup over the pecans and popcorn, stirring briskly with the oiled spoon to coat. Immediately spread the popcorn in a baking pan. Cool completely then break into bite-sized pieces.
