Yield: 13 cups
Ingredients:

  • ½ cup popcorn kernels, un-popped

  • 2 cups whole almonds, roasted and salted
  • 5 ounces dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries
  • ¼ cup butter

Directions:

  1. Using an air popper, pop the popcorn. (It should make about 6 cups.) In a large bowl, mix cereal, almonds and popcorn.
  2. In a separate large bowl, mix butter and honey. Microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture comes to a full boil and butter is melted. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
  3. Stir in cranberries, blueberries or cherries and mix well. Store in airtight container.
