Chocolate Coated Caramel Corn with Cashews, Peanuts, and Coconut

 

With all the nuts, this mixture is very similar to that delicious Moose Munch that Harry and David sells. Except when I make it, I can add more nuts. And more chocolate. And coconut. It's also great with other nuts (macadamia nuts and almonds are tasty) and/or pretzels. You pretty much can't go wrong.

What you will need

5 bags plain popcorn, popped (this is about 20 cups of popcorn, so you can pop it any way you wish)

3 1/2 cups cashew halves, toasted

2 cups peanuts, toasted

1 cup unsweetened coconut, toasted

2 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup water, or more as necessary

3 tablespoons butter

1 vanilla bean, split

1/4 cup heavy cream

generous pinch of sea salt

30 ounces dark chocate, melted (or more as needed)

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
