1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 Tbs vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Milk and white melting chocolate

Mix popped corn and nuts in 2 large bowls (makes a lot). In pan, mix syrup, sugar, butter and tartar. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce to medium heat and boil until just before hard boil stage. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour half over each bowl of popcorn/nutx. Stir to coat evenly. Spread wax paper onto cookie sheets and pour popcorn onto wax paper. Drizzle with milk AND white chocolate. Let dry and break apart.
