And now for the final item in my gift baskets. As my hubby would say this is what Christmas taste like. It really is a tasty treat and since it’s not overly sweet it was a good contrast to the Amaretto Caramel Corn.

Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from pans and place on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container.

I used these cute little containers to put each of the popcorns in then tied the dish with a pretty ribbon.
