OMGosh! I went to my friend, Maren's house yesterday, and we made the COOLEST carmel corn....ever! It was AMAZING. Let me see if I can remember the recipe: (you'll need a BIG mixing bowl to hold all that popcorn - just so you know)
1 1/2 cups of popcorn kernals - popped in an air popper
combine in a sauce pan:
1 cup real butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light caro syrup
1 tsp salt
(food coloring, if you want COOL colors)
heat to boiling, then cook for 4 minutes.
add 1 tsp vanilla, then 1 tsp of baking soda (watch out, they will bubble and rise quite a bit)
Pour carmel mixture over the popped corn, stiring to coat all of the corn. Place on baking trays, and bake in the oven at a very low temperature for an hour. It makes a nice, crispy carmel corn. AMAZING stuff!
We did a batch of Green, Purple, Black, and Orange corn. Then, Maren mixed the colors, and put it in baggies, to hand out at our Halloween Party on Wednesday (today). I'll take some pictures tonight at the party, to put with this post. SO good!
Well, it's Wednesday again! This WordArt request comes from Christina, and I thought it would be GREAT for TONS of layouts :) Kids sure grow up fast, but so do other things around us.
