popcorn recipe and girlfriends

I get to go away with some of my bestest girl-friends.
Friends that know me really well.
Friends who have seen me at my VERY worst moments and have been with me for my very best.
I love these girls.

I have to wait two weeks. I get to go away with them in two weeks for an overnighter. I am beside myself with excitement. Cannot wait until I see them. And shop with them. And eat with them. And of course laugh my head off with them.

This post is actually brought on by my thinking about what snack I want to bring. I decided on peanut butter popcorn and went looking for the recipe. Almost didn't find it so I decided to add the recipe here on my blog so I can have access to it at anytime! This recipe was used when my youth group would get together and one of the moms would make it. I love it.

Peanut-butter Popcorn recipe

4 quarts popped corn
1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ cups light corn syrup
1 ½ cup peanut butter
1 ½ tsp vanilla

Add sugar and syrup together in pan and bring to full boil. Stir for 30 seconds stirring constantly. Remove from heat and beat in peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over popcorn.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
