Nutty Popcorn

My mom used to make "Nutty Popcorn" when we would go on trips.  It was a good snack that could provide fiber, protein, and satisfy a salty or sweet craving.  I've made a couple of additions to the recipe, but it's still a favorite.  I make this every time we go camping, and the bag always comes home empty.
12 C unsalted popped corn
1 C toasted whole almonds
1 C toasted pecan halves
½ C butter
½ C brown sugar
½ t vanilla powder (optional – this is Dawn’s addition)
½ t almond extract (optional – this is Dawn’s addition)
½ t salt

Combine popcorn and nuts. 
Melt butter. Stir in sugar, salt, vanilla powder and almond extract.  Cook about 30 seconds.
Pour over popcorn and stir.
Spread on jellyroll pan or cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 stirring once.
