Trail Mix Popcorn

I threw this  together for a family gathering that was featuring multiple types of popcorn--kettle, peanut butter, and pink popcorn, to name a few.  We served them in cute little paper bag baskets.  They were an especial hit with the kids.

8 c. popped corn
1/2 c. maple syrup
1/2 c. cranberries
1/2 c. coarsely chopped nuts (hazelnuts, pecans, almonds)
1/2 c. chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)
sea salt to taste

Heat maple syrup over a medium low heat.  Bring to a boil and boil for about 2 minutes.  With popcorn in a large bowl, pour maple syrup carefully over popcorn and carefully stir.  Add cranberries and nuts; mix.  Add chocolate chips and barely mix in.  Pour into a 9x13" pan, salt, and freeze to cool completely.  Store in an air tight container.
