finally! back in the kitchen with smc

i am going to a married mormon lady craft night. its kind of an unwritten rule(sometimes it actually is written,but not this time.)that you bring food to share with the group. i was going through my recipes trying to figure out what to take ,when i stumbled upon one that i had forgotten about-i havent made it in a LONG time. so glad i found it because its easy and its always a hit. i originally found it on a blog (i think its gone now)called the frantic home cook. her blog was the first time (shows you how long ago it was)that i had seen someone photograph each step of the recipe. i originally made it for a rs book club gathering and i literally had women fighting over the bowl. i love the sweet/savory thing going on here. try it. youll like it. i swear. it would be great for a game night, craft night, or just a night home with your sweetheart(if you have one of those.)

peanut butter popcorn

adapted from one ordinary day who adapted it from frantic home cook.

8-10 c. popped popcorn(i popped 2 bags of butter flavor)

1 c. light corn syrup

1 c. granulated sugar

1. c. peanut butter (I used smooth)
(i added a tsp of vanilla extract here, but its not necessary)
2 pinches of kosher salt or sea salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Stir corn syrup and sugar together in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter. Be careful! This is super hot! Pour mixture over popcorn and stir to coat. Pour popcorn onto baking sheet and bake in oven for 10 minutes. Spoon popcorn onto wire rack covered with waxed paper or parchment paper. Allow to cool completely.
