Tell yourself you are making this for the kids. Then hide it where only you can find it.
Lightly spray a large roasting pan with vegetable cooking spray. Combine the popcorn and nuts in the roasting pan and place in the oven.
In a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches a full, rolling boil. Stop stirring and allow to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda
Pour sugar mixture over popcorn and nuts, tossing to coat. Return pan to oven and bake at 250° for 1 hour, stirring mixture occasionally.
Allow mixture to cool, then break apart. Store in an airtight container.
