Trick or Treat #5

A little over a week ago we decided to hold our first ever scary movie night.

It is fun that the kids are getting older and instead of watching, "Winnie the Poo says Boo" we can watch, "Beetle Juice."

Since we were trying a new activity we thought it would be fun to try a new snack so Brent and the kids dug through the family cook book and decided on, "Screaming Yellow Zonker's." A caramel corn recipe provided by his sister.


The kids had lots of fun making it and of course lots of fun eating it. So if you are looking for a great caramel corn recipe keep reading.

3 Bags of Popcorn
2 Cups Butter or Margarine (That is not a Typo 2)
1/2 Cup Corn Syrup
2 Cups Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda


Put first five ingredients in medium pot. Bring to rolling boil and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add baking soda. Immediately pour over popcorn and mix well. Place caramel corn in a shallow pan and bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes. Watch closely. Cool on wax Paper. Enjoy!


What is your favorite fall treat?

PS We had lots of fun watching Beetle Juice the kids particular liked that I was not happy that Beettle Juice had a potty mouth yet the movie was rated PG.
