    100g Popcorn

    100g Pecans, chopped

    115g Salted Butter

    200g Demerara Sugar

    4 tbsp Golden Syrup

    Pinch of salt

    ½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda


    Pre-heat the oven to 150°C/Fan 130°C/Gas Mark 2.

    Melt the butter, sugar, golden syrup and salt over a gentle heat, then stir in the bicarbonate of soda.

    Add the popcorn and pecans, giving it a quick stir, then transfer to a casserole dish (no lid required).

    Bake the popcorn mixture in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

    Remove from the oven, leaving the popcorn to cool slightly before breaking up into a bowl. Alternatively, leave the popcorn to cool completely and transfer to bags to give as an edible gift.
