Sweet And Salty Caramel Popcorn Mix With Wasabi Peas And Cashews. Y-U-M.

Caramel covered wasabi peas. That was all I had to read and I was sold.

As party mixes go, this one is ace. It is different enough to make it interesting, and yummy enough to make it disappear.

Sweet And Salty Caramel Popcorn Mix With Wasabi Peas And Cashews


5 cups popcorn ( I love Smartfood Movie Theater Butter Flavored Popcorn)
5 cups assorted Japanese rice crackers (not fish flavor)
1 1/2 cups cashew nuts
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups wasabi peas
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup dark or light corn syrup
1 stick unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Toss the popcorn, rice crackers, cashews, sesame seeds and wasabi peas in a large bowl.

2. Combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then cook, stirring, until thick, about 1 more minute. Remove from the heat. Carefully stir in the vanilla and baking soda (the caramel will bubble).

3. Pour the hot caramel over the popcorn mixture and stir with a metal spoon. (Don’t worry if the caramel is too thick to coat the mix; it will melt in the oven.) Spread on the prepared baking sheets; bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until evenly coated, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool completely. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Maybe you can help me out here.

I can’t for the life of me figure out where I got this song from.

I cannot find anything about the band or song no matter how hard I search (spending too much time sifting through the Breakfast At Tiffany’s stuff and the band Holly Golightly).

There is a HoLLy band on Facebook, but I’m pretty sure it is not who I am looking for.

Golightly is a great tune. Bouncy, fun pop. Dance up a storm kind of music.

Let me know if you have any info about these guys.
