Pumpkin Spice Popcorn

Oh my word, this little treat is so decadent and perfect for the pumpkin lover. I found this treat on Pinterest and had to share. If you must eat the entire batch, just eat it on a Sunday. Calories don't count on Sundays.

1 3.3oz bag Kettle Corn popcorn, popped remove all unpopped kernels
1 Cup dry roasted peanuts
2 Cups unwrapped pumpkin spice hershey kisses (If you cannot find the kisses, substitute 1 Cup of butterscotch chips)
4 Tablespoons butter
3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
1/3 Cup corn syrup
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place popped popcorn and peanuts onto a large rimmed baking sheet that has been sprayed lightly with non stick cooking spray.

Place kisses, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a light boil. Remove from heat and pour evenly over popcorn and nuts. Gently stir to coat mixture over popcorn. Bake in oven for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and pour onto parchment paper to cool. Break into pieces and serve. Enjoy!
