What's Cooking To{day}...

I thought I'd share an old recipe I love making, especially this time of year... this one is so yummy and easy... so, if you're a popcorn lover, you won't be able to resist making it & gobbling it up.

Microwave Caramel Corn
• 1/2 Cup Butter
• 1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
• 1 Cup Brown Sugar
• 1/2 tsp Salt
• 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
• 16-24 Cups Popped Popcorn
• Cooking Spray
• 1 Large Paper Grocery Bag
• Cookie Sheet

Spray the inside of one large grocery bag thoroughly. Place popped popcorn in bag... set aside. Combine butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cooking in Microwave for 2-2 1/2 minutes... bringing to a boil. Stir in baking soda... this will foam... this is normal... stir together. Add syrup mixture to popped popcorn... lightly stir. Roll bag down and place in microwave for 1 minute. Sire again, return to microwave for 1 more minute. Open bag and pour onto cookie sheet. Let cook. Break apart, store in air tight containers.... and enjoy!!!

Okay... so here's what we did with our caramel corn along with one of our Thanksgiving crafts this week....  We couldn't resist making this paper bag turkey...  putting our caramel corn in the turkey legs and regular popped popcorn inside the body... it's silly... it's fun... and it's ever so yummy!!!

Well, I'm off to get things ready for Thanksgiving... plus making more turkey crafts with Rainee... plus whipping up a batch of turkey cakepops... plus, plus, plus... who knows what.... it's going to be a very busy day... hope yours is full of delights....
