Pot O' Gold

Yum

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner!
So to celebrate, gather your Irish pot and let's put some gold in there!

This is a yummy sweet treat made with corn puffs.  I use the Okedoke brand and it goes quicker than you can say, "Top of the Morning."
Here's how to make it...

Ingredients:
8 oz bag of corn puffs (Okedoke brand)
1 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup Light Karo Syrup
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Pour corn puffs into a large roasting pan and set aside.

Melt butter in a 2 quart pot.  Stir in brown sugar and Karo syrup.  Bring to a rapid boil.  Boil for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.  

Add baking soda.  The mixture will become foamy and start to expand up the pot.  Mix well.

Pour mixture over corn puffs, stirring evenly to coat.

Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes while baking.

Spread on wax paper to cool.  Break apart and then store in an air-tight container.



This treat is so addicting!!!  It's sweet, crunchy coating is so good...you may want to hoard each and every pot of gold!  It's great wrapped in cellophane as treat bags for the classroom, a party or for your coworkers.
No need to stress over finding a leprechaun...you got your own pots o' gold!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
