My kids love all things (friendly) monster. Is there a child that doesn't? So when I saw these fun candy eyes the other day at Target, I knew I had to put them to use-Halloween style. My mom has this famous (well not quite, but it should be) gooey caramel popcorn that my siblings and I used to just gobble right up. I hadn't made it for years, so I pulled it out of the archive. Why I waited so long, I don't know, but I do know that it'll be making a much more regular appearance at our house in the future.
dash of salt
Bring to a boil. Pour over popcorn and carefully incorporate so all popcorn is covered.
Unwrap taffy and melt in a buttered saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently. Immediately drizzle over popcorn mixture. Store in an air-tight container.
Other possible add-ins are candy corns, M&M's, chocolate chips, pretzels, marshmallows, etc.
So many possibilities! I just decided to keep it simple to highlight the fun "monster" features.
I love that the melted taffy gives it the "green slime" look...so fitting for a Halloween dessert!
Or, form it into mini balls, drop in cellophane bags and tie with ribbon.
It's sure to be the talk of the party!
so feel free to half the recipe if you'd like.
Oh my gooey-ness that looks amazing! I know my kiddos would LOVE this!
Adding it to our Halloween to do list right now! :)
