Hello lovelies! Happy Thursday!
Yesterday was Goodie Day at work! YAHOO! Many desserts, a few proteins, overall...holy yumminess! My contribution was Microwave Caramel Corn.
This recipe has been in my family since I was young. I'm not sure where my mom got it, but I'm so thankful that she has it! It is tradition on Thanksgiving and Christmas that my sister and I (and now my nephew and niece!) make caramel corn...very first thing (10 a.m.? OK!). So YUMMY!
What's that? You'd like the recipe? Well of course you would! I'm happy to share this goodness!
3/4 C popcorn kernels
1 C brown sugar
1 cube butter
1/4 C Karo syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Use an air popper to pop the kernels. Place the popcorn in a brown paper bag and set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine sugar, butter, syrup and salt. Microwave ingredients for 1.5 minutes. Stir. Microwave for 2 more minutes. Remove from microwave; add baking power and stir. Immediately pour syrup mixture over popcorn. Roll paper bag top to close and then shake vigorously to coat popcorn. Microwave coated popcorn for 1.5 minutes. Remove from microwave and shake vigorously again. Microwave for 1.5 more minutes. Remove bag from microwave. Pour popcorn onto wax paper to cool. (My mom has a giant pyrex baking dish that is perfect for this task.) Devour!
In other news...
My Christmas tree is finally standing!
And other decorations are up as well. It's not finished, but it's started, and that makes my heart happy!
So tell me friends...do you go wild and crazy on the Christmas decor, or keep it simple?
Have an awesome day!
