If I could and caramel popcorn..

When I asked "If you could"..I actually had to think for a few days before I could really answer that question myself..I still don't know if I have an answer! There are so many things that I would want to give them and when I think about it.. I would give them each something different.. mainly, I would give them discernment...the world is a scary place and it can be really hard to live above the influence of the world surrounding them ..I know it is a battlefield for me at times and I am a young, healthy 30 something! lol Thank you for sharing your "if I could's" I love each of the answers as they spoke to me too..what a mom wouldn't give to their children..and we can!! Being Mom..it's the best gift you can give! Caramel popcorn recipe
for the weekend!!

Ingredients
3 (3.5 ounce) packages microwave popcorn, popped
2 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup butter
1 (5 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

Directions
Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Shake and toss the bowl to make the unpopped kernels go to the bottom; discard.

In a sauce pan over medium-high heat, cook the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter, stirring constantly. Heat to 270 to 290 degrees F (132 to 143 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard but pliable threads. Remove from the heat, and carefully pour in the can of condensed milk; stir until smooth.

Pour 1/4 of the caramel at a time over the popcorn, stirring until all of the popcorn is covered. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving..
Have a great weekend everyone!!! love ya mean it! Stephanie

I've made many batches of caramel corn in my day but never any that didn't have to go into the oven after putting it together. I'm going to have to try your recipe! Thanks for sharing it.

Oh yum, that looks like the perfect kind of munchies, so sweet and crunchy. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your caramel corn up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/02/sweets-for-saturday-6.html

Oh my deliciousness - as SOON as I figure out a decent substitute for corn syrup (which seems to be in about every recipe any of my US blogger friends publish) Im going to make this! Im getting desperate and may consider paying extortionate shipping costs to get my grubby paws on some. Even if only for this. AMAZING.

This sounds amazing! In my country there's not very common to have popcorn of any other flavour besides butter and salt, so this is something great for a popcorn lover like me :) Thank you for the recipe :) Oh, and your photos are gorgeous!
