  • 1 can salted peanuts
  • 1 bag dried canberries
  • 2 stick butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light Karo syrup
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

In a large saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar, and Karo syrup; bring to a boil and cook for 1 ½ minutes, stirring constantly. Stir baking soda into the carmel mixture; mix well. (Note: the mixture will bubble up so use a large saucepan.) pour hot mixture in bag, fold down the top of the bag and shake. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, shaking after each minute. Spread on wax paper to cool.

Salted-Carmel Pretzel Bark

  • 1/2 bag of mini pretzel twists
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 bag of milk chocolate chips
  • Sea salt or table salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with sides with parchment paper and lay a sigle layer of pretzels down. In a saucepan, melt the butter and the brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Let it boil until it forms a nice smooth caramel, stir constantly until caramel thickens. Remove from heat and pour over pretzels. Place cookie sheet in oven for 5 minutes. Remove pretzels from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over pretzels. Place cookie sheet back in the oven for 1 minute to melt the chips. Spread the chips around with a spatula until mostly melted. Sprinkle generously with salt. Let cool for a few minutes and put them in the freezer for 2-3 hours; break into chunks and serve.

Rocky Road Munch

  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup toffee bits
  • 1/2 cup whole salted almonds
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips

Sprinkle evenly with the marshmallows, toffee bits, almonds and chocolate chips. Bake until the chocolate is softened 3-5 minutes. Let stand 1 minute. Toss the mixture until evenly coated. Spread the mixture on the prepared work surface. Cool completely. Store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
