Recipe: Caramel Popcorn and Halloween 2014

I had a hankerin' for some good ole' fashioned
caramel popcorn and this easy recipe did NOT dissapoint.
Here's what you'll need:

I medium bowl of plain popcorn (microwave or air popped)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons of light corn syrup
dash of vanilla 
12 large marshmallows

I used my air popper to pop the corn. 
 Then I melted my butter in a saucepan. 
I added the rest of the ingredients and mixed them while stirring. Lastly, I added the marshmallows and melted them into the mixture.




Immediately pour it on the popcorn and using a spoon coat all the popcorn.
Transfer to a glass baking dish and enjoy!! 


Sinfully gooey and delicious!!



And last but not least, here are a few pics of my last minute Halloween decorations. First up my  mantle. 


The stencils for the wood blocks were cut with my new Cricut Explore which I absolutely love!!
The cat face was also cut with the cricut.
We put the outdoor decorations the day before Halloween. Talk about cutting it close. For some reason I haven't been in my "game" this year for decorating :(
These are our Nightmare Before Christmas themed decorations that we made as a family years ago.







 My sweet little guy dressed up as an old time photographer/"press guy" as he called it. 

Easy and snazzy don't you think?




The camera is a working Pentax film camera. 
It's from the 1970s I think.

So much fun. 
Enjoy the cool weather!
