Something very good lies in wait inside of this unassuming bag... the contents are pictured below.
(And no, it is not fun stuff from Office Max purchased at 15% off...)
I got some of these last Christmas as treats circulated, petitioned someone for the recipe, found a version of it, made them, but they didn't turn out. :(
This year, I found the source, got the recipe, and they turned out!!
My family loves them...
(I think I do more though..)
2 cups sugar
1 pound of butter (I KNOW!! But they are soooo good..)
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons Karo Syrup
Bring all ingredients to a boil and boil for 5 1/2 - 6 minutes (I would suggest the lesser..) and pour over the corn puffs (they usually sell them in the chip area of the grocery store in GIANT bags). It's a good idea to do it in a paper bag, then fold the top and shake it up. You can store it in the paper bag or in an airtight container.
I will warn you, the bottom of the bag is the best part. :)
I guess that I have to go scrap a traditional layout now too... you know those goals!
