grown up girl bonding time.

Friday night Paul decided to go to a late movie, the babies were in bed, so Savannah and I decided to stay up late.

I was craving what we call around these parts Christmas Corn Pops! Savannah isn't a huge fan, but Devin and I can pound this stuff down. We mixed up a small batch, and then got in bed for a chick flick. I woke up sometime around Midnight, curled up next to my big girl...who was snoozing too. It was a perfect night.

After I posted a picture of our corn pops on Instagram, I had a few people ask for the recipe. I have no idea who to give credit to for the recipe, besides the girl that I use to work with. :) I don't cook, so you won't be getting a play-by-play in just ain't my thang!

Christmas Corn Pops Recipe

1 bag of corn pops...not the cereal people! You can find the kind of corn pops I am talking about down the chip isle.

You want to warm up the corn pops in the oven at 250 degrees while you are making the sauce for them. I use a big roasting pan, works perfectly.

1 1/2 Cups Butter
1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
6 Tablespoons Water
6 Tablespoons Karo Syrup

Mix together in a saucepan until it is at the "soft-ball stage".

Poor over warm pops, stir, and then spread out on a wax paper to cool.
Enjoy friends, and don't blame me for any weight gain. :)

We barely can wait for it to cool before we start eating. I think I love it more than caramel corn.

These are way too good. I have to use a lot of self- discipline not to eat the entire batch.

I think I first learned of these at RCW
