You would think with how much I love candy that Halloween would be my favorite holiday, and I will admit it’s definitely up there. You see, I am a candy girl, and I’m actually not too picky about it either. Of course I have my favorites, but if you’re to offer me a piece of candy 9 times out of 10 I’ll take it. Except if it’s black licorice flavored of course – blech! In fact, when asked recently how to “make my day” I responded that one could bring me some candy, and it’s totally true. A neighbor actually saw that answer and brought me candy a couple days later, it was awesome! Anyway,I love candy, but that’s just one reason why I love Halloween. I actually love dressing up for Halloween too! The last couple years it’s been so fun to have a husband to dress up with, and have costumes that go together. Last year I was a street sign that said “bump ahead” to announce our pregnancy and Nate was a construction worker, the year before Nate was a fisherman and I was a fly, and the year before Nate was an overstuffed suitcase and I was a tourist. This year Colby is going to be a dinosaur, but I’m not too sure yet about Nate and I, maybe Flintstones.
Anyway, for as much as I just love eating candy by the handful, I love using it in recipes too. And this Butterfingers popcorn is the perfect recipe just for that. I used marshmallows and peanut butter to make the popcorn nice and gooey and oh so delicious, added in lots of chopped up Butterfingers pieces, and drizzled some delicious chocolate on top.
- 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
