2441  COOKING / Dessert / Caramel Corn! Mmmmm! on: October 27, 2011 11:49:19 AM
I've never really been a fan of caramel corn.  I'm kind of a picky sweet food eater.  But I wanted to make some treats for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap that would keep and transport easily.  While searching Allrecipes.com, I found a recipe for caramel corn that looked pretty good!  It had raving reviews, so I knew I must try it!  And, omg, I am not sorry I did.  Well, my body wasn't exactly happy, but my mouth was!  Mmmmmm!



The recipe I used is here:  http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/my-amish-friends-caramel-corn/detail.aspx

I used Orville Redenbacher's Tender White popcorn and instead of 1c of margerine, I used butter.  I believe I used either 2 or 3 bags of the popcorn.  I put the popped popcorn into a large paperbag, poured the caramel mixture in and mixed with a wooden spoon.  I then poured the bag into a large roasting pan covered in tin foil and popped it in the oven.  The caramel mixture spreads more when you stir it while its baking.  After baking, I dumped the caramel corn onto my counter that was covered in wax paper and separate the pieces.  Its so easy and so good!  I will be making this for Christmas for my family, for sure!




After it was all cooled, I put them into bags for my partner, her husband, and kids.

My sister even liked it, and she shares my same sentiments for caramel corn.  So, even if you aren't a caramel corn fan, definitely take a chance on this recipe!

Thanks for looking!

For the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap, I made my partner's two daughters each a bag of candy made of felt!


I kept getting strange looks when I was at JoAnn's and told people what I was making.  I'm making felt candy.  It also took my husband a while to grasp what I was talking about.  No, its not actually food or sugary felt that you suck on.  Its play food!  You play with it!  ^_^  lol!

Anywho!  They were pretty simple to make.  They are filled with batting that were either cut into squares, rectangles, or circles, covered in felt and sewed up with embroidery floss.  The suckers were the hardest ones to make.  They are a sucker stick that you can get in the baking area, poly-fil, and felt.  They were sewed up at the bottom and then pulled shut.  I also threw some hotglue inside to help keep the sticks on there and it all in one piece.



Thanks for looking!

Hey guys!

I just joined the October ATC swap; I'm new to both swapping and ATCs so I wanted to stop in and say hello. Wink

Hi Rosy!  Welcome to the fun world of ATCs!  They are so much fun to make and trade!  I can't wait to see what you make!  Everyone is really nice and helpful here in the ATC board, so feel free to ask questions if you ever need to!
