Caramel Crack

We have a new addiction in our house — Caramel Corn Puffs.

A local bakery sells small bags of these for outrageous prices. I knew I could make them myself for much cheaper. It’s really easy. There are only a few ingredients.

An 8 oz bag of corn puffs (just like cheez puffs w/out the cheese (yeah, right, as if that bright orange stuff is really cheese)
1 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of corn syrup
1 teaspoon of baking sods

Put the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a pan and bring it to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and then add the baking soda.

Dump your corn puffs into a large bowl (or pot as I did). Pour the hot caramel over them. DO NOT try to photograph yourself while pouring the SCALDING hot syrup over the corn puffs. OOOOUUUUCCCCHHHH!

Mix it all together really well. Pour the carmelly puffs onto two cookie sheets.

Bake at 250 for 45 minutes. When it comes out of the oven, stir it a few times so it won’t stick to the pan. Let it cool. Go crazy.

This stuff is sooooo good we’ve been calling it crack around here. It’s addictive. My 6 year old woke up early to sneak downstairs and eat some before breakfast. I caught him. Then we sat down together and polished off a couple handfuls together. It’s our secret. Shhhhhh!
