Snickers Popcorn Recipe

Snickers Popcorn Ingredients 8 quarts air popped corn (about 2 cups of kernels) 1 cup salted butter 2 cups light brown sugar, packed 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup salted peanuts 30 "Fun Size" Snickers bars coarsely chopped 3 oz melted semi sweet chocolate (optional) How to Make Preheat oven to 200° Over medium heat boil butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in your baking soda. Pour over your popcorn and stir to coat evenly. Transfer to waxed paper lined counter and sprinkle peanuts on top. Stir until all is coated evenly. Transfer popcorn into a large roasting pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and stir in your coarsely chopped Snickers. Return to oven for 3 more minutes so the Snickers begin to melt slightly into the popcorn. Remove from pan and transfer popcorn back to wax paper to cool. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of popcorn if desired. Let set and store in an airtight container.

Homemade Delicious Scrub

Alright, It's not a food recipe, but it's still a great product. Give it a try. Just don't eat it. DIY Delicious Scrub 1 cup organic cane sugar 1/3 cup celtic sea salt 1/2 cup organic coconut oil 2-3 tablespoons almond oil 1 tablespoon vitamin e Lavender essential oil Scrubs are a wonderful way to gently exfoliate and leave you feeling fresh and renewed. Making your own is a breeze, and most the time you can use what you already have at home. I start with a recycled jar, and then add a little bit of the salt, sugar, coconut oil {one at a time so I can control the consistency} and then add the rest of the ingredients.
