Carmel Crunch Corn

This is a fun crunchy treat that is perfect for munching on while watching a movie, or when having friends over to play games! We love this, I hope you enjoy!

4 cups popped popcorn
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 cup chow mein noodles
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large greased bowl, combine the popcorn, peanuts, noodles and raisins; set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, corn syrup and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches soft-crack stage (270°-290°) with a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat. Stir in cinnamon.
Pour over popcorn mixture; stir until evenly coated. Immediately pour onto a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan.
When cool enough to handle, break into pieces. Store in airtight containers. Yields 8 cups.
