I would love to tell you that I have been up to something amazing, but I am in a sugar coma, and haven't done anything exciting. We made Sticky Popcorn last night, and it turns out that I have no self control when I pass that huge bowl on the counter, hence the sugar coma. So just in case you are in need of a day off, I'll share the recipe.
5 quarts popped popcorn, with unpopped kernels removed
1 cup butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2 cups nuts
1 cup M & M's or Reese's Pieces
In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, bring butter, sugar, corn syrup and salt to a boil for 3 minutes;stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and add vanilla, careful, it boils up a bit. Then mix in the marshmallows until melted.
With popcorn in a very large bowl, pour mixture over it and then sprinkle on the nuts and M & M's, and stir like crazy until well combined. Eat from the bowl, or make into popcorn balls.
Then sit around with that sugar haze looking at everything wondering, "should I take a picture of that and post it." I answered, yes. Here's a snap of the sticky popcorn and some vintage goodness around the house.
