caramel marshmallow popcorn

pinterest strikes again! 

i know i'm not supposed to say "i found this on pinterest", but i did.  and i tried to find the original post, googled it and came up with three or four different sites.  so, i found it on pinterest.  and it is seriously the easiest treat ever.  like, i've made it four times in less than a week, easy.  (i took 2 batches to a potluck last sat!)

here we go:
pop 12 c. (2 bags) of popcorn.  (make sure to remove the unpopped kernels) melt 1 stick of butter & 1/2 c. brown sugar in the microwave for 2 minutes.  stir until you get a yummy caramel sauce.  add 12 large marshmallows.  nuke it for another minute or two, until you can stir the marshmallow goo into the sauce.  it will take a little stirring to get it completely mixed in.  FYI, this last batch i melted it together all at once and they don't seem to be setting up as well as the first three batches.  they seem a bit soggy.

but when it tastes this good, it doesn't stick around long enough to be a problem.

what have you made lately that you "found on pinterest"?

another "pinterest" project i'm doing is these braided headbands.  i cut up an old tee of troy's into 1 and 2 inch strips, and have been practicing my 5 strand braid.  it's getting better!  these could be fun for bracelets too. 

i'm going to see denyse schmidt speak tomorrow night, and i am super excited!  i'm taking my book to have her sign, and am looking forward to a fun night out!  talk to you soon!
