For those of you who happened to hopped into my blog looking for Caramel Popcorn, here is one recipe which is very nice. I've tried this twice at home and it tastes great! I got it from a little magazine from the gas station.. but it was months ago and I can't remember where I placed it.. lucky I did scribbled out the recipe though.

You will need:
80gms of popcorn (unpopped)
a stick of butter (salted)
half a cup of sugar
4 tbsps of yummy peanut butter of your choice. (i used Planters and tried Skippy too)
quarter cup of corn syrup

Oil a large flat pan(that comes with a lid). Don't use a shallow one, a deep one is the best! Place the popping corn on a single layer and cover it over medium high heat. Do not lift the lid and shake it occasionally and you will hear popping sounds. The pop corns will pop but do not peek, remember or you might get hurt from popping corn bullets!! When you don't hear any popping sounds, turn the heat off the stove. Pour the popped corn onto a large roasting pan.

Make your glaze (sugar coat)
In the saucepan, melt butter, sugar and peanut butter and stir well to prevent burning of sugar in butter. Butter burns fast. Once the sugar is melted in the hot butter, remove from heat and pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir or toss to get the corn evenly coated. Place it in the oven and and bake in the oven at 120 deg C for an hour. Stir the pop corn at 15 mins interval, to get crispy and well coated popcorn.

Remove, cool and store in airtight container.

Have fun and enjoy your Caramel Peanut Butter Popcorn!

Cherry Pretzel - Pretzels aren't popular in Belgium so it's one of those treats that I treasure in almost any form. You know those peanut butter filled pretzel logs? Well just imagine them filled with peanut butter and wrapped with whole fresh cherries.
