Method

  1. Step 1

    Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine sugar and ½ cup (125ml) water in a medium saucepan. Stir over low heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves.
  2. Step 2

    Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Cook, uncovered, without stirring, for 7-8 mins or until golden brown. Set aside until the bubbles subside. Add popcorn, pepitas, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds and swirl to coat (don’t stir or the mixture will crystallise).
  3. Step 3

    Carefully pour the hot popcorn mixture onto the lined tray. Set aside for 1 hour or until cool and hard. Break into pieces.
