Gourmet Cinnamon Roll Popcorn

This amazing recipe for Gourmet Cinnamon Roll Popcorn has been posted all over the internet by now, and for good reason. When I saw the recipe at Creations by Kara I finally buckled down and prepared a batch. Many thanks to her for the recipe. It lived up to all the hype I've read over the past few months.

Gourmet Cinnamon Roll Popcorn
Makes several servings

12 cups popped popcorn (I used 2 bags of light microwave popcorn)
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup soft butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 squares almond bark (about 4 oz)

1. Place popcorn and chopped pecans in a large bowl and set aside.

2. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a large glass bowl.  Mix well.  Add butter and corn syrup.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds; stir to combine.  Return to microwave and heat for 2 minutes.  Remove and stir. Microwave for 2 more minutes. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Mixture will foam. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn and pecans and stir till everything is well coated.

3. Line a jelly roll pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Pour popcorn onto foil.  Place in oven and bake at 250° for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

4. Melt almond bark according to package instructions.  Drizzle over popcorn mixture.  When almond bark is set and popcorn is cool, break into chunks.
