Sweet meets salty in this delicious and easy-to-prep snack.
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pretzel sticks, broken in half
1 cup Shreddies cereal
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup peanuts, or sliced almond
1/2 tsp salt
Combine oil with 3 popcorn kernels in a large, wide pot over medium heat. When the kernels pop, add remaining kernels and carefully sprinkle very evenly with sugar. Cover with a lid and cook, picking up pot to shake every few seconds, until the popping slows down, 2 to 3 min. Immediately pour popcorn into a large bowl and stir in pretzels, Shreddies, cherries, peanuts and salt.
