thanks for posting your recipe, yummy yummy
Thanks, my brother use to make this when we were teens and I loved it :thumbup:
I love this. I only make it once in a while since you can't quilt eating it. I give it to a friend every year for Christmas. I always have to make her a batch to take to work. They call it popcorn crack since it is so addicting you just can't quit
All are welcome !!!
I enjoy sharing it as much as I do eating it ! LOL
It is very addictive :-D
((((( Hugs )))))
I remember my Mom making this at each Christmas, but she always made the 'sauce' on the stove until it formed a 'soft ball' and she didn't bake it. I will have to try this way, 'cause I sure don't make it her way :)
Haven't made this in years...thanks for posting the recipe...may have to make it soon!
Sounds delicious! Thank you! Would be nice to make at the holidays.
