Salted Caramel Popcorn

Salted Caramel Popcorn

20150925_180539So if you know me at all, you know I’m OBSESSED with popcorn.

Obsessed is probably not even giving my love of popcorn justice but I can’t come up with a stronger adjective right now 🙂

My favorite popcorn topping is nutritional yeast (ummm wipe that look of your face, it’s delicious). But truth be told, I’ve never met a popcorn I didn’t really like.

One day when I was working browsing through Pinterest (but seriously how can I get a job doing that?) I came across a post on caramel popcorn. I’m more of a salty and sweet type of girl so I thought why not make salted caramel popcorn?

Well point for me! Because it turned out amazing. One tip (careful of unpopped kernals! If they’re mixed in with your caramely clusters you could hurt your teeth! ( I didn’t do that or anything…)  Enjoy!!

Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

Hi all! I was on the look for a quick little something to have sitting out for some friends to come over and came across these- they are deeeelicious! Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions:

In a large skillet or pot combine the sugar, cinnamon and water over medium-high heat until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the almonds and stir constantly with a spoon or spatula, coating the almonds with the syrupy mixture. It should look something like this:

Keep stirring until the sugar crystallizes (this takes about 8-10 minutes) and it looks sandy. Don’t stop stirring! It might feel like forever but keep going! Then it will look something like this:

Remove the pan from heat and scoop the almonds onto wax or parchment paper.

Let the cinnamon almonds cool for a few minutes before serving.
