It's November already! That means my most dreaded day of the year's fast approaching... only 1 week away. This girls not excited about turning 30 (ugh), I don't even want to look at the number. I'm probably making a big deal out of it for nothing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I won't wake up and suddenly have crows feet and sagging items. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Here's the kiddos in their Halloween attire. Sophie won first place as Twilight's Alice Cullen, Chase was an MU Tiger and Makayla also won first as Pippi. I wanted to share one of my families favorite fall treats. Popcorn Balls. Yum! These are my favorite because they're nice and soft. I love the fact these won't break your teeth off from being so hard like some popcorn balls.
SOFT POPCORN BALLS
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup margarine
2 teaspoons cold water
2 5/8 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup marshmallows
5 quarts plain popped popcorn (3 bags of microwave)
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, margarine, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel.
Grease hands with vegetable shortening and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools (you have to press hard).
