What a nice, busy Mother’s Day weekend we’ve had! I am so lucky to have such a great family. My boys were so sweet, they sent me on a little scavenger hunt to find my Mother’s Day Surprise, what cuties they all are! Hope everyone has enjoyed time with their families this weekend!We got home a little early this evening and I felt like baking something. I had to buy a bunch of boxes of Kettle Corn over the weekend to make popcorn balls for a lesson I was teaching in church, and had quite a few boxes left over. I decided on this sweet and salty candied popcorn creation with some butterscotch chips I had in the pantry.
And how cute are these popcorn boxes? I found them at one of my all time favorite stores, Cost Plus World Market. I think it came with 20 boxes for about $6.00. They have such fun unique products there, if you haven’t been, be sure to check it out for fun finds.My boys were already asleep when I made this popcorn, but I know they will be begging for a bag full first thing in the morning. It wouldn’t be a recipe of mine if it wasn’t easy, so whip a batch up and enjoy!
