Haven't bought your Halloween candy yet for the trick-or-treaters? COOL. Make this homemade treat instead! It's still SWEET, but at least you know they'll be getting a l'il protein and fiber :wink:. Caramel Corn 3 quarts of popped corn 1 1/2 cups roasted shelled peanuts 1 cup of brown sugar (packed) 1/2 cup butter or margarine 1/4 cup light corn syrup 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. baking soda Put popped corn and peanuts in a brown grocery bag. Mix brown sugar, butter, syrup and salt in a bowl you can use in the microwave. Microwave on high 3 to 4 minutes, stirring after EVERY minute until it comes to a boil. After mixture comes to a boil, microwave 2 more minutes and add soda. Stir in the soda and immediately pour mixture over the popcorn and peanuts in the bag. Fold down the end of the bag and put into the microwave, microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Shake the bag real good and put back into the microwave for another 1 1/2 minutes. Remove and pour out contents immediately into large pan. Some may stick to the sides of the bag and you will need to scrape this off. Delicious!
