Boo to you from our crew - Gooey Caramel Apple Monster Corn

Have I mentioned how much I love Blog Hops?  No really I do, OK I don't love that people don't stop by and say hi like they should or leave a comment when they do stop by (OK off my soap box). What I do love about them is finding amazing new things to make!  This Halloween I had a plan but then I came across some new things and of course had to try them out.  The only bad thing is this year being at public school vs private I have more kids to make for!

I found this really cool idea for Gooey Caramel Apple Monster Corn on I Dig Pinterest.  I had most of the items already on hand. I made a quick trip to the Dollar Tree for the Caramel Apple Taffy.  I should have picked up the gum drops like she had in her recipe but let's just say shopping at the Dollar Tree with the boys needs to be a get in and get out or I end up with a cart full of crap (I mean real crap some of those toys are just that!)

What you Need:
4 c. unpopped corn kernels or about 12 c. popped corn
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. karo syrup
1/2 c. butter
dash of salt
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 t. vanilla
1 pkg. (7.5 oz.) Caramel Apple Taffy (Dollar Tree - I used 2 bags)
Peanuts (I skipped)
sprinkles (I used on half of the batch)
gum drops (I forgot to pick up so skipped it)
Wilton Candy Eyes (I bought mine at Walmart, seen at Target & Micheals)
MM (I threw in a few orange and green)
Wilton Bags (Found on Clearance at Micheals 99cents for 15 bags)
Caramel Part:
Pop the corn.  Stir brown sugar, karo syrup, butter and salt in a sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Stir in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Bring to a boil.

Popcorn / Caramel Part:
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.

Hope you enjoy and give these a try!

  6. I'm pretty bad about visiting and not commenting! I'm always in such a rush or on my iPad which makes leaving comments more difficult. BUT, I had to say this popcorn and the bleeding brains cakes are pretty gruesomely awesome!
