This might just be the most perfect snack in the entire world. Little pretzels with melted chocolate kisses and an m+m to give it a little festive flare. I will have to try these out really soon. Thank you pinterest for showing me such amazing things.
I've been racking my brain the last few weeks for some decent office snacks. I've decided that I absolutely have to stock my desk with good snack food or this evil monster will come out of me around 1:00 pm. I'm usually so focused that I will work right though breakfast and lunch without thinking then all of a sudden I'm starving and grabbing anything to eat in arms length. Unfortunately, everything at arms length is extremely unhealthy around my office so stocking my desk is a barrier to protect me from the monster. My newest thing is to buy real oatmeal keep it in a baggie under my desk with dried fruit, and maybe sweetener (I've done without it a lot lately, but you never know). Then all you have to do is throw it in a cup with a little water, and microwave for two minutes. Oatmeal usually keeps me going for at least another hour and a half till I can get to some decent lunch spot.
It's been so hot lately that I've been fantasizing about Halloween. So I decided to share one of my favorite spooky snack foods with you. It is the combination of two of my favorite treats combined into a loving symphony of snacky goodness. That is the perfect creation of pop corn and candy corn together at last. Please enjoy…
• 1/4 cup vegetable oil
• 1/4 cup white sugar ( white sugar makes it taste little kettle corn or popcorn balls, brown sugar makes it taste like Carmel corn you choose)
• 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
• ½ cup of candy corn ( or any other candy you prefer i.e. … gummy worms etc)
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place three kernels of corn in the pot. Once all three kernels have popped, your oil is hot enough for the rest of the corn. Stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping has stopped.Lift lid and immediately sprinkle with salt. Recover give it one good shake to make sure all the popping has ceased. Pour into a large bowl, and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps. Then toss in your favorite treat. I love throwing in candy corn, but gummy worms, and even little broken up pieces of candy bars will work just fine.
