I can't help it.
Food preparation always helps me de-stress. And this whole week has been "one of those days!"
I just love the creative process of throwing easy recipes together for the blog, so I'm going to subject you to yet another post with photos that make your mouth water. It's kind of a theme this week.
Don't worry. This one involves simple ingredients that most of us have in one form or another. Chances are, with a little tweaking, you could pull this off. Yes, I use highfalutin ingredients sometimes, like coconut sugar, but you can sub with brown sugar if that's what you have on hand.
The Friday Munchies Candied Popcorn
1 batch of air-popped popcorn
1/2 cup salted butter (if you use unsalted, just salt to taste. Maaaaybe 1/8 tsp?)
1 cup coconut sugar (Or brown sugar.)
2 Tbsp raw honey. (It seems silly since I'm going to cook it, but it's all I have right now.)
2 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter in small saucepan on low heat. Pour in the honey and coconut sugar.
Gently drizzle over popcorn.
Yep. I just walked over and checked his bowl and he didn't eat any of his. More for Mommy!
I'm going to need a big glass of lemon water to wash this down.
