Caramel Corn

-1 cup butter
-1/2 cup corn syrup
-2 cups brown sugar
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-6 quarts popped corn

*Optional* nuts (almonds, peanuts, pecans)

Preheat 250 degrees.
Melt the butter, corn syrup, brown sugar and salt together over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the soda and vanilla. It will foam! Pour over the popped corn and mix well. Spread the coated corn onto large buttered cookie sheets and bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Let it cool and eat!

Little hands won't be able to stay out of it!

Side note: I cut the recipe in forth for the above pictures. We had also eaten 70% of the treat in the 2nd picture!

Pronto Mini Pizzas (a.k.a english muffin pizzas)

My kids love this meal!

-English muffins
-Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce
-Pizza Blend Cheese
-Assorted Toppings Ideas
*We love turkey pepperoni (if you haven't tried this it's a must! Not so greasy like regular pepperoni)
*Canadian Bacon
*Mushrooms, bell pepper, olives, onion

Preheat Oven to 400. Split English Muffins in half, spread app. 2 TBLE sauce onto each muffin. Sprinkle evenly with toppings of your choice. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

***This recipe was taken from THE PAMPERED CHEF. It came with my stonewear pan. The time should be the same but check it a bit earlier if using a regular cookie sheet, stonewear seems to take a bit longer.
