I took my old one that I had (and got when I got married 19 years ago!) to church last night. I did Activity Day for the 8-11 yr old kids @ church, and I decided to make them some caramel corn. I've always used the air popper even though my sister says to use the microwave butter ones because it makes it taste better. Anyway, so I had to drag it out of the storage room, and it was covered in dust. To tell you the truth, I don't know the last time I used it. I've saved it from the trash can many times since Shawn feels since I haven't used it in years, it needs to be tossed. I am at the church starting to pop the kernals, and Kayley walks in. She thought it was the coolest thing ever! I asked her if she doesn't remember me using it, and she says no. So, there you have it~ almost 12 years old (Kayley is) and doesn't remember me ever using it... that's how long it's been!
Easy Caramel Corn
*Pop 1/2 c. popcorn kernals or microwave 1-2 bags of butter popcorn. Remove all unpopped seeds as you DO NOT want to bite down on those. Place in big bowl.
*In saucepan, melt 1 stick of real butter on med-low heat. Add 2/3 c. brown sugar. Mix well until smooth. Add 13 jumbo marshmallows.
*After all melted and smooth, pour over popcorn and mix well. Best when eaten warm. Enjoy!
