We are on our Christmas break and good heavens we have SO much snow! The kids go out and play in it every afternoon when it finally warms up to a slightly warmer temperature. But all this snow makes for the perfect treat- vanilla snow ice cream! It is so easy and if you have snow then your set! Most of the ingredients for this recipe are usually in your fridge or pantry. If you are expecting ice cream texture you may be disappointed. It is more of like thick milkshake in texture and just as delicious!
Ooey, gooey caramel popcorn…..I THINK SO!!I have always enjoyed when other people make caramel popcorn. It is so delicious and a perfect touch to a sweet craving.
I have always enjoyed when other people make caramel popcorn. It is so delicious and a perfect touch to a sweet craving. It seems to cure my sweet tooth every time.
I have always feared caramel popcorn due to the understanding that it is complicated. (Remeber, I am not much of a cook….yet!) I must have just been told this when I was little, due to parents not wanting to make it for me! Now that I am a parent, I completely understand why they would say that.
I came across this easy simple recipe in a Ward cookbook, and it changed my thinking! I can have delicious gooey caramel popcorn in 15 mins! 15 minutes to a cure a craving, PERFECT!
Try it out for yourself! Caramel popcorn is a perfect fall treat. My 11 year old usually makes the caramel while I pop the popcorn. It’s that simple!
Better yet……this is just as soft and gooey days after 🙂
