Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

Ok, think Christmas goodies with this recipe. I love handing out homemade treats to friends for Christmas. Not the standards like chocolate chip cookies or brownies but something different and unique...maybe even NEW. So this recipe is great in cellophane bags with a pretty ribbon at the top and maybe a gift tag with the name of the recipe on it. This recipe is for carmel corn lovers but with a different twist. We really like it.

Caramel Corn Puffs

1 bag or box corn puffs (like Kix or Corn Pops...check bulk bins...about 1 lb)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon baking soda

Bring the brown sugar, corn syrup and butter to a boil, add the baking soda and stir Pour the corn puffs into a cake pan and pour the caramel over, stir to coat Bake at 250F, stirring every 10 minutes for 45 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.
