  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
  2. Place popcorn in a large pot with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Over a low heat, begin to pop the popcorn. Constantly shake the pot to ensure that the popcorn kernels and oil do not burn. Once the popping has slowed, remove the pot from heat.
  3. In a large saucepan, mix butter or margarine, brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring this mixture to a boil (over a medium heat) while stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and do not stir for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and mix in baking powder and vanilla extract, stirring carefully.
  4. In a large baking pan, combine popcorn, pretzels, cereal and pecans. Pour the butter mixture over the popcorn mixture, stir to coat.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture after the first 15 minutes have elapsed.

Everyone who has ate this has loved it! I have made this for years, so much so, I had to find the recipe again to reprint it! If you let your caramel set up in your pan, just warm it back up in ...

The caramel in this recipe is so good. I substituted the popcorn for Chex. I guessed how much 1 cup of unpopped popcorn would make (about 3 cups) and put in Corn Chex instead. I left out the ...

This recipe was fine with adjustments. When mixing it I saw that I didn't have nearly enough caramel mix, but when I quickly whipped up another batch to add to the rest it was fine. I did have...

I hated this here recipe because it tasted yucky.
