1 bag Newman's Own® Natural Flavor Microwave Popcorn
1 cup dried tart cherries
1 cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup dark corn syrup
10 Tbsp margarine or butter (1 1/4 sticks)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp instant espresso coffee powder
Pop the popcorn according to package directions. Pour the popcorn into a large greased roasting pan and stir in dried cherries and chopped hazelnuts.
In a 2-quart saucepan, mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, and margarine or butter and heat on medium, stirring constantly. Heat until temperature reaches 290°F on a candy thermometer, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon and espresso powder. Pour over the popcorn mixture and stir well to coat evenly.
Let mixture cool slightly. While still warm, form into balls. After cooling, store in airtight container.
