Mix popcorn and nuts in a large butter bowl. Combine sugar, syrup, butter/margarine, water, salt, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Heat slowly to the boiling point, stirring until sugar melts. Cook to hard crack stage (290-295 degrees Fahrenheit).
Pour syrup in a fine stream over popcorn and nuts. Stir until popcorn and nuts are evenly coated with syrup. Spread out on large buttered surface or waxed paper. Separate into bite-sized portions with forks. Cool.
Serves: 4 1/2 quarts
