Combine 6 C unsalted popped popcorn, 1 C coarsly chopped dried apple pieces, and 3/4 C chopped pecans in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
In a medium saucepan, heat 1/4 C light molasses, 1/4 C light corn syrup, 2 T. butter, 2 T. light brown sugar, 2 T. sugar, and 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice. Stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Don’t let it burn. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally until mixture reaches 285 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.
Pour syrup all over popcorn mixture. Stir fast and well to coat evenly. I use two wooden spoons like I’m tossing a salad. Cool popcorn mixture to room temperature. Break cooled popcorn mixture into smaller pieces. This recipe makes about 1 pound of Apple Pumpkin Popcorn Crunch Mix.
