  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

  2. Place bread on a large baking sheet. Bake in oven for 3-4 minutes to slightly dry out. Remove from oven. Set aside. Increase heat to 350 degrees F.

  3. While the bread bakes, place butter, olive oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small saucepan on medium heat. Cook stirring occasionally until butter melts and ingredients combine. Remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes.

  4. Drizzle butter mixture onto croutons making sure to cover as much surface area as possible. Mix, using hands to work the butter mixture into the croutons. Bake for 4 minutes. Remove from oven. Stir croutons to ensure even browning. Bake for an additional 4 minutes or until croutons are crispy.  Cooking time may vary; make sure to check on it frequently. Remove and allow to cool on baking sheet.

  5. Mix together cooled croutons, popcorn, chocolate chips, dried cherries, and pecans in a large mixing bowl. Serve. Store in an airtight container.
