Story Time Snack: A Recipe for GOLD!

You've heard the expression, "put your money where your mouth is." But what if we literally did that?

Looks a little like this


Right?!  And who doesn't love caramel popcorn?

Here’s a recipe for edible gold to snack on while reading about the Alaskan Gold Rush in Alison Hart’s Murphy, Gold Rush Dog

Ingredients:
  •       1 cup butter
  •       2 cups brown sugar
  •       ½ cup corn syrup
  •       1 teaspoon salt
  •       ½ teaspoon baking soda
  •       1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •       5 quarts popped popcorn (microwave or stove-top is fine!)

Directions:


1.  Preheat oven to 250°F

2.  Put popped popcorn in a large bowl.

3.  In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.



4.  Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.

5.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Then, boil without stirring for 4 minutes.

6.  Remove from heat and stir in baking soda and vanilla.

7.  Pour in a thin stream over popcorn, stirring to coat.




8.  Place in two large shallow baking dishes and bake in a preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for 1 hour.


9.  Remove from oven and let cool completely. 








Just try to only eat a serving size. I double-Murphy-Gold-Rush-Dog-dare you. 

Ha. See what I did there?
