This is probably my favorite test thus far...and the most delicious! This would make the perfect snack to bring along to a party, or in our case, the Super Bowl of Iowa. The original recipe that I found called for Corn Pops or any hull-free popcorn -- I used Puff Corn. Since the recipe calls for a 1/2 pound of butter, the end result tastes quite buttery, but I (unfortunately) LOVE that taste. I will definitely make this recipe again, and use the same amount of butter. Here's what you'll need:
- About 8 ounces of Puff Corn (or Corn Pops)
- 2 Sticks of Butter
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup Light Karo Syrup
- 1 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1 Cup Cashews (optional)
We had some technical difficulties so this is two videos. The 2nd one has some great tips for general baking too!
Beware -- this will be gone before you know it! The name of this snack is definitely fitting -- it's addicting and leaves you wanting more. You'll start to have the shakes after a bit of withdrawal sets in. Enjoy....at your own risk!!
