Made Famous By: Heather McMullin aka Made Famous By and Grandma HoneyBee
Can you believe the New Year is less than a week away? I am so excited for this coming year. I have many goals that I want to accomplish! I have never made a New Years resolution list before, but this year more than any I really want to improve myself and fulfill some of my goals.
1. 1. Fully recover from my Brain surgery.
2. 2. Read something uplifting every day and implement it into my daily life.
By doing this I believe that every day I can come closer to the person I want become and accomplish some of my dreams. I know that if we try each day to be a little better than we were the day before I can accomplish a lot of personal growth. This will help me to be a better Mom to my kids, wife to my husband, and really be present in my life.
What are some of your New Years resolutions?
Nutty Caramel Popcorn
1 lb. popping corn (4-5 bags of microwave popcorn, old maids removed)
2 Cups Cashews
2 Cups Slivered almonds
2 Cups Macadamia nuts
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup dark Karo Syrup plus 2 Tablespoons
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter (1 square)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 level tsp. baking soda
*Mix sugars, syrup, salt and water all together and boil to soft ball stage. If you don’t have a candy thermometer it takes about 5-10 minutes.
*Remove from heat and add butter, vanilla and soda. Mix and pour over popped corn.
*Add: Slivered Almonds, Macadamia nuts, and Cashews
**Note: A good way to test if the caramel is ready is to drop a few drops of caramel into water...when it stays together well and sinks it is to the soft ball stage.**
