I've told you before you should sign up for the weekly newsletter from Dierbergs.  In addition to special coupons each week, they include good recipe ideas with items that are on sale that week.  The following is a recipe from this week's newsletter.  It's the perfect treat for your Halloween party.

2 quarts (8 cups) popped corn
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup M&Ms, Reese's Pieces or candy corn

Combine popcorn and peanuts in a 9 x 13" pan.  Combine butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in 2 cup glass measure.  Microwave (high) for 1 1/2 minutes; whisk until smooth and slightly thickened.  Drizzle over popcorn mixture; stir until popcorn is coated.  Bake in 350 degree oven, stirring twice during baking, until coating is dry, about 10 - 12 minutes.  Spread onto foil-lined tray to cool completely.  Stir in candies.  Store in tightly sealed container.
