Crunchy Cinnamon and Caramel Popcorn!

 Crunchy Cinnamon and Caramel Popcorn!
These are 2 fabulous varieties of candied popcorn that are perfect for the holidays!

 Caramel Popcorn:
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Butter
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
15 Cups popped popcorn
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda (added at the end of boiling)

 Or the family favorite recipe
 Cinnamon Popcorn:
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Butter
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
15 Cups popped popcorn
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda (added in at the end of boiling)
1 tsp Cinnamon oil  (added in at the end of boiling)

Directions for both:
Combine sugar, butter, syrup and salt in pan.
Boil together for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and then add 1/2 tsp baking soda.
(add the cinnamon now too)

Here's the ingredients for the caramel popcorn...
combined and just starting to melt!
 Pour 15 cups of popped popcorn into a brown paper bag.
Pour the sugar mixture right inside and stir with large spoon to coat evenly.
Then scoop it out onto baking sheet...some will stick on the inside of the bag.
No worries...super easy clean up!
 Bake for 1 hour at 200* F
 Let it cool and enjoy!
 Perfect in bags for neighbor gifts too!
We love Cinnamon popcorn!
Do you have a favorite family treat that you love for the holidays?

Jingle Bell Earrings!

 Jingle Bell Earrings!
  Jingle Bell earrings are cute, festive and easy to make!
My ten year old did these ones.

You'll need:
2 bells
2 earring studs with loops...or french hooks
a couple inches of chain
4 jump rings
jewelry pliers
 Hook a jump ring on the bell.
 While the jump ring is still open,
attach the chain.
(we cut ours after we hooked it on)
 Close the jump ring
Cut the chain...then connect the earring stud and the chain with another jump ring.
Done!
We did one red and one green for variety.
