1) Place a deep 2-quart saucepan over moderate heat and heat the maple syrup till it hits a temperature of 236 degrees on a candy thermometer. The syrup should be hot enough to form a small ball when a small amount is dropped in cold water.
2) Oil a large roasting pan lightly and add the walnuts and popcorn. Pour the syrup all over.
3) With a large oiled spatula, gently mix the ingredients. Ensure that the very hot mixture is not touched.
4) Allow to cool, occasionally stirring, and then break the preparation into clumps.

5) Serve right away.
