Chilli, lime and maple macadamia and popcorn party mix

Chilli, lime and maple macadamia and popcorn party mix

Macadamias combined with popcorn make this the best and most addictive party mix! As party snacks go, this one is healthier than most, thanks to the nutrient-packed macadamias and the maple sweetener. So don’t feel too guilty about that extra handful…or two.

3 cups

¾ cup whole macadamias

2½ tablespoons maple syrup

¼ teaspoon chilli powder (or to taste)

1 tablespoon lime juice

Zest of 1 lime (about 1 teaspoon)

½ teaspoon salt flakes

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 cups plain popcorn (store bought or home popped)

Line a large baking sheet with baking paper. Place all ingredients except the popcorn into a large frying pan and cook, stirring often, over a low-medium heat for 7-8 minutes, until the macadamias are just golden and sticky. Stir in the popcorn to coat it as much as possible, about 1 minute.

Spread onto the lined tray, spreading it out as much as possible, and allow to cool until the coating is crisp. Serve when cool or store in an airtight container.
