Three weeks later and we still don’t know if/when we are closing on our new house. P asked for the first time when we were going “home” today. I’m surprised she waited three weeks to ask!!!!
So,I have a couple recipes to share. A few of my friends don’t use microwaves for health reasons, so you can also do these the old fashioned way; cooking sauce on stove, pouring over, and baking in oven. But these have been handy while we don’t have a stove!
(History: came from my sister’s college room mate!)
Place 16 cups popped popcorn in brown grocery bag.
Put 1 stick butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup (can use honey insteac), and 1/2 tsp salt in microwave safe bowl.
2 minutes on high – stir
3 minutes on high – stir
Add: 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Stir very well.
Pour mixture over popcorn in bag. Fold bag and shake, shake, shake.
Put in microwave, following instructions below. No peeking!
1 min, shake
1 min. shake
30 sec. shake
30 sec. shake and pour onto waxed paper to dry.
I also adapted my Mom’s Cheerio Nuggets recipe to this.
Follow sauce and above instructions using this in the bag instead:
10 cups cheerios
2 cups nuts
1 cup raisens
For those that don’t like raisen or nuts, you can add whatever you want, craisens, etc etc .
