Candied Popcorn Recipe: Sesame Maple Popcorn,

"Maple Popcorn

with Sesame Seeds"

This delicious candied popcorn recipe has a true gourmet touch. Prepared with real maple syrup and crusted with sesame seeds, Sesame Maple Popcorn is a company-worthy treat. Just ask them.

Sesame-Maple Popcorn

12 cups popped popcorn (@ 1/3 cup kernels)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 cup real maple syrup
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons butter

Pour the popcorn into a large, lightly oiled bowl and set aside.

In a small, dry skillet, lightly toast the sesame seeds over medium heat, stirring often, until just golden brown, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

Boil the maple syrup, water and butter together in a small saucepan until it reaches the soft ball stage on a candy thermometer, about 236 degrees. (At that temperature, a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water will form a ball that you can flatten with your fingers.)

Drizzle the syrup mixture over the popcorn evenly, mixing as you go. Sprinkle the popcorn with the sesame seeds. Toss, cool slightly, and break apart.
