It’s day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Kindness. Today’s act of kindness is simple:

Share something with a friend today

And I have just the thing for you to share! This caramel puff corn is so chewy, sweet and delicious. It’s relatively simple to make, although I had to make two batches this round (me and baking soda aren’t friends). It’s so good you might have a hard time sharing, but because of it’s highly addictive qualities (think popcorn + caramel) it will be worth the gift of kindness. 

If caramel puff corn is not in the works for you today, there are so many more things to share with a friend. Share a laugh, share a memory, share something funny, share a phone call or share some of your time to help your friend. There are many things in life worth sharing and having friends to share them with make life even more special. So this holiday season make sure to cherish your friendships and share something with those friends today!

Caramel Puff Corn

Recipe courtesy of Old Dutch

INGREDIENTS
1 bag of puff corn (I suggest Old Dutch)
1 c. butter
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. light corn syrup
1 t. baking soda

GUIDANCE
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook until mixture has melted. Add baking soda – be aware this will cause the mixture to foam. Pour puff corn into a LARGE bowl and pour caramel mixture over the puff corn and mix until all combined. Spread onto 2 baking sheets (I used a silpat baking mat for easy cleanup). Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and spread onto wax paper and break apart. Let cool and enjoy!
