Food Fun Friday-Caramel Corn Puffs

yes it does seem irrrsponsible to list a diet web site one day and this sugary goodness the next...
but, hey... that's how I roll

These were surprisingly simple and a different look for your cookie tray.

Caramel Corn Puffs
1 (8oz) bag of puffed butter pops (found in the chip isle)
dump them in a large roasting pan.

in a sauce pan over med-high heat
1/2C butter
1/2 C light corn syrup
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
Mix in a saucepan for two minutes on med=high until bubbly around the edges.  Remove from heat and add baking soda.  It will foam as you stir.  Pour over the puffs and stir until all are coated.

Place in a 250degree oven and bake 40-45 minutes stirring every 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and dump onto wax paper.  Break into clumps before puffs cool.

I forgot to break into clumps BEFORE it was cooled down and some of them stuck to the wax paper... so Mr. Produce had (HAD) to eat those!!!

They look great on a plate with other goodies and a change from all chocolate.

I found this at Mindy's recipe Box here    which, by the way, a WONDERFUL recipe blog! yum yum
