Moose Tracks Snack Mix

One of my most favorite things is moose tracks popcorn (like the one from Harry & David). I decided to try and replicate it today and so far, so good.

Word to the Wise: I am still trying to figure out how to store this. I put one batch in ziploc bags and another batch in a tupperware. Both have lost some of the crunch. My recommendation would be to leave it on the wax paper overnight, then to store it. I am thinking the batches I made may not have dried out completely and instead retained some of the moisture. If anyone makes this and successfully stores it, let me know!

Moose Tracks Snack Mix

Time: 20 minutes prep; 40 minutes in the oven; 20 minutes finish time

Serving Size: Approx. 12-14 cups of mix


  • 2 bags popcorn (regular or kettle corn)

  • 2 cups brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup corn syrup

  • 2 sticks butter

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 cup peanuts (optional)

  • 1 cup crushed pretzels

  • 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 2tbsp milk

 


  1. Preheat oven to 250F

  2. Make both bags of popcorn and place in 2 large bowls.

  3. On stove, heat 2 cups brown sugar, 1.75 sticks of butter, 1/2 cup corn syrup, baking soda, vanilla and salt. Allow it to come to a boil. Once boiling, stir for 3 minutes.

  4. Pour the mix over the popcorn and stir.

  5. Grease baking sheets (I covered them in foil) and pour popcorn onto sheets (I used 2 sheets, though 3 would have been slightly better).

  6. Cook for 40 minutes, mixing every 20 minutes.

  7. Remove from oven and place on wax paper in a single layer (i.e. spread it out onto as much wax paper as necessary so it is not piled high).

  8. Take peanuts and crushed pretzels and sprinkle throughout popcorn mix.

  9. Melt chocolate. I boil water and then put a second pan over top (creating my own double boiler of sorts). I then mix in about 2tbsp of butter and 2-3 tbsp of milk. Allow it to melt thoroughly.

  10. Drizzle over popcorn. You can either leave it like this, or mix all of the popcorn up so that the chocolate coats it well.

October 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterwendy

When was I to add the salt, baking soda and vanilla? I had the popcorn and caramel sauce in the oven - I
think I missed it.

I just amended the recipe above. I apologize for the confusion. That all gets mixed in when making the caramel sauce.
