  • Summary

    Chef Graham Elliot, of restaurants Graham Elliot and Grahamwich in Chicago, shared this recipe as part of a Tree-Trimming Party Menu he created exclusively for Epicurious. Inspired by the spiced snacks served at German Christmas markets, this popcorn combines the sweetness of caramel with savory, salty nuts. The caramel sets quickly, so have all your ingredients and tools ready to go, and try to work as quickly as possible. If you're strapped for time, you can use microwave popcorn or even store-bought.

    Ingredients

    • Nonstick vegetable-oil spray
    • 1 cup popcorn kernels
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
    • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
    • 2 3/4 cups sugar
    • 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
    • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    • 2 cups (about 8 ounces) smoked or regular Marcona almonds, coarsely chopped*
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fleur de sel
    • *Marcona almonds are tender Spanish nuts that are usually roasted and salted. They're available at specialty foods stores and some supermarkets.
