I'm so WEAK!

I'm so weak, I have no control of myself when I make my favorite Christmas treat. I honestly had to have my husband take the last batch of this I made and lock it in a padlocked tote. So weak!! And when I'm feeling entitled to a treat and hit that moment of weakness, I demand that he gives me the key. He lovingly tries to discourage me , just like I instructed, but I just get mad and go from demanding to threatening and he loses the will to fight.

Make at you own risk...
Addictive Caramel Corn Puffs
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. Karo (light)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 package butter flavored corn puffs

In a large saucepan, bring butter, brown sugar and Karo to a boil for 5 minutes stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla, salt and baking soda. (This will cause the mixture to bubble up.) Pour the corn puffs into a large bowl. Pour the mixture over the corn puffs and stir until well coated. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Turn and stir every 15 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire cooling rack. To store, place in a sealed air tight container.

*I always double this recipe and have to make several batches to share because I'm the Corn Puff pusher and all my friends and family have developed a Caramel Corn Puff habit too!
