Awesome Junk (Food!)

Junk of a different kind. This is a little more fattening than thrift store junk, but it smells better too! This is a yummy recipe for caramel corn that my family loves!

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk
2 bags of light microwave popcorn

Pop up 2 bags of light popcorn (light so it is not as buttery).

Bring butter, sugar and syrup to a boil. Boil, while stirring for 3-4 minutes.

Remove from heat and add sweetened milk, stir and pour over popcorn and mix thoroughly.

I was going to put it in a prettier bowl for the pictures, but hey, this is us, ugly tupperware and all Ü. Try some this weekend!

  4. You know...I was thinking about making popcorn today because it is filling and low calorie... but now I'm wanting to make it and add this! LOL You stinker!!!

  5. Yummy! This looks so delicious! My friend Stevie made some white chocolate popcorn for me one day. I honestly didn't think that I was gonna like it...but it was sooooo good! I get him to make it a lot now! It is so good that I can't stop once I start eating it! I will have to try yours now!
