Iola Egle of Bella Vista , Ark. Egle, an avid cook, has several of her own cookbooks. "I read cookbooks like novels," She said. "This recipe was given to me by special friend, Barb Wiemers of McCook , Neb. , many years ago."
Egle said her family--four children and 14 grand children--loves the recipe, and one bag of popcorn really doesn't cut it. "One bag of popcorn is just a beginner, and when we are together, it would take at least four recipes," she said. "Usually I make part of it with white almond bark and half with chocolate almond bark." The Macadamia Popcorn recipe is a special treat for the Egle family and can be tailored to fit different holidays.
"I have made it for Valentine's Day--substituting red hots for the macadamia nuts," Egle said. "Sometimes I use cocktail peanuts instead of macadamia nuts--it's more cost efficient and some guests prefer peanuts."
Cooking, for Egle is a fun project, in which she enjoys planning menus and preparing meals for guests.
Mix nuts and popcorn. Pour melted white bark over them. Spread out on waxed paper on jelly roll pan to dry. Break apart.
