Day 1: We watched Elf and I made this amazing caramel corn with no corn syrup!

  • Preheat oven to 300
  • Melt 2 sticks of butter in a sauce pan
  • Add in 1 cup honey, 1 cup organic brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Mix constantly as you bring it to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. 
  • Remove from heat and add in 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
  • Mix well. 
  • Pour over 12 cups popped popcorn. 
  • Place on parchment covered cookie sheets.
  • Shake a bit of kosher salt of fresh ground salt over each cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 25 minutes stirring (carefully) halfway through. 
  • Allow to cool at least 10 minutes before eating to avoid burns. 

 

Day 2: Make peg nativity.
