Mary Knew.

                   And quite frankly, she's done with the whole interrogation. She's got stuff to do.

10 Minute Cranberry Caramel Popcorn

Oh. My. Gosh.  This stuff is delicious.  And easy.  I can envision myself making this for Falls and Winters to come.  People will probably invite me to parties with one of two requirements: either I MUST BRING the CCP or WE HAVE HAD YOUR CCP SEVEN TIMES THIS MONTH, BRING SOMETHING ELSE!  (That's a joke obviously.  You can never have too much Cranberry Caramel Popcorn.)  Anyhow, here's the recipe:

Pop four servings of popcorn.  (I typically use my hot air popper and these kernels, but I've used bagged or microwaved kettle corn before at Gracie's request and that tastes great too.)

On the stovetop, combine and continuously stir:

1 stick butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Karo syrup
tsp. vanilla

Stop stirring when it looks like caramel.  LOL

Pour over popped corn and add dried cranberries (like Craisins).  Voila!

Gracie likes to add mini marshmallows and John likes pecans.  You can add all sorts of stuff to this base recipe!

Makes five servings.  Unless you have a tween.  Then no promises.
