3In a large bowl, combine popcorn and almonds.
4Combine sugar, syrup, butter and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, immediately add peanut butter and vanilla; stir until smooth. Drizzle over popcorn; toss well. Spread popcorn mixture out onto prepared pan or sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely. Tip: using a spaghetti server to stir works wonders.
