OK! Truth time number two for the week. I’m not much into baking or making “treats”. I’m not that person who spends hours baking fifteen different kinds of cookies to give to friends and neighbors. If I bake for someone it means I REALLY like them or care about them. So when it comes time to do these posts every week I’m looking for things that are easy but seem impressive. That’s how I came upon this recipe. It’s just popcorn with some stuff chopped up, topped off with caramel and marshmallows. It’s like crispy treats, only with popcorn, get it?
Side note: did you know that trying to chop pretzel sticks is absolutely nerve wrecking?. Those things just start pinging all over your kitchen. So I suggest that you just make sure you have really clean hands and snap those puppies yourself.
Also, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t add my own special touches. So when I took the caramel off the stove to add the cream I also added about two tablespoons of butter. I added the butter because I decided to put these in cupcake papers, and I wanted to be sure they would release. Plus who doesn’t like creamy, buttery caramel? I also added about half a cup of white chocolate chips to make them even richer! Sometimes I just don’t know how to stop myself people. I need a support group.
Alright, on with the pics!
Before you worry that my family is about to go into sugar shock, you should know I am making these for my husbands co workers. All in all you can make about 2 1/2 dozen of these little babies. I tested one out (just to make sure they aren’t poisoned ) . If you make these things, whoever receives them will be your BFF.
Now off to the kitchen!
