Jana's Peanut Butter Popcorn

Wish I'd Done That: Play lots of games with your kids. Start when they are very young: Candy Land, etc. As they grow older, they will learn to lose gracefully (!) and to win in a nice way, too. It gives the family opportunities to talk about serious stuff without having a dramatic sit-down, and the great dialogue that develops is vital for families and for kids. Your kids will know that you value them when you spend time with them.

I was talking to Jana the other day, and she was going to a card party. She had to take a snack, and this is what she made. Again, the ingredients are in your pantry, and it is fabulous. It's also a great fall snack.

Jana's Peanut Butter Popcorn

1 C sugar

1 C white Karo syrup

Cook until it reaches a boil.

Add 1 C peanut butter and 1 tsp. vanilla.

Pour over 2 bags popped microwave popcorn. Stir and cool. (I added 1 C peanuts, and it was great!)

We took this to the TU game on Saturday (we are now 4-0!) and it was a hit. Great for tailgating..
