Happy December!! Let the festive season begin !!
We had a busy weekend around here - including Christmas recital practise and the boys' birthday party.We did manage to fit in some "down time" including Creationary and a Grinch puzzle.
Camden and Afton worked well together and slowly the mean green guy appeared....
I have an easy recipe for you today. Recently I whipped some up for a craft party I held for some of my girlfriends.
I bought 2 bags of popcorn - one bag of "caramel" and one bag of "sweet and salty," sometimes called "kettle corn."
I mixed both flavours over the surface of a cookie sheet.
For an extra crunch, I also sprinkled on 1 cup of cashews - but any nut would do.
Next I melted about 1/2 cup of green chocolate candy wafers in the microwave and used a fork to drizzle (ooh I love that word!) the green goo over the spread popcorn.
The stirring spoon was then surrendered to my littlest elf, Camden.
I repeated the process with 1/2 cup of red meltable wafers.
Within an hour, the chocolate had cooled and hardened and I could dump my simple Christmas corn into a sealed container until it was time to serve.
My kids were so upset that I was saving it to serve to the "grown-ups" instead of them.
So the next day, I made another batch - sweet and simple.
And it was gone immediately, too!!
