Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun

…with doublemint gum!

I just found out..I’m going to be a grandma times two!

My son and his wife are expecting twins! She is six weeks along today. I am beside myself!

Hopefully they won’t look like this photo.

So in celebration of my expected children running the roost at our home again, and Halloween,
I am posting a kid happy recipe for Popcorn Balls.

Caramel Candy Popcorn Balls

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon whole milk
4 cups popped corn

Dissolve brown sugar in water. Stir and bring to boil. Once brown sugar dissolves, stop stirring and boil for another 5 minutes (mixture will begin to thicken). Remove from heat and stir in milk. Cool to room temperature. Pour over popcorn. Spray hands with nonstick cooking spray and form balls.

    Thanks for this recipe. My grandmother made popcorn balls to give out at Halloween, well into the era of product tampering paranoia. Love ’em!

    Yippee! Twice as nice!

    I love caramel corn, in any form, but it’s favorite thing to do to me is attack me around the waist and I tend to want to avoid that!
