Caramel Corn, Peanut Brittle with GH Cretors Popped Corn a great holiday treat! #Recipe #Giveaway




The holiday season is here in full swing I am sure we all have a full calendar, going here and there for the holidays. From the kids holiday parties, to family gatherings there is so much to look forward to in the coming weeks. But with everything that is going on it can feel overwhelming sometimes, but try not to stress.. The holidays are about family, take the time and enjoy yours! A full social calendar shouldn’t mean you’re full of stress! 
Whether you need to whip up a last minute appetizer for your office holiday party or create a unique hostess gift for the in-laws, popcorn is the perfect solution. Are you a popcorn fan? Well you are going to love GH Cretors Popped Corn! G.H. Cretors Popped Corn uses quality ingredients and artisanal craftsmanship to produce popped corn that can be enjoyed as an ingredient, gift, or tasty snack. Obsessively delicious flavors include: The Mix, Just the Caramel Corn, Organic Chile Jalapeño White Cheddar.   

One of our favorite family treats that we have been making for many years is peanut brittle. I have fond memories of making this sweet treat with my grandmother when I was a child. I would watch in wonder as the sugar slowly turned into the brown sweet liquid, and when the peanuts were added I knew it was almost time to taste… almost!
I look back at those memories and I smile. I wanted to whip up a batch with a slight yummy twist, the addition of a sweet crunchy topping of  GH Cretors Just the Caramel Corn. Here is our family recipe with that delicious popcorn twist: 

GH Cretors Just the Caramel Corn Peanut Brittle

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 cup peanuts (salted or plain)
1 cup GH Cretors Just the Carmel Corn

Directions:

Before starting, be sure to grease a baking pan (use a pan with sides) set this aside. Use a medium saucepan and combine the corn syrup, sugar, water and butter stir the mixture on medium heat until this boils. When this starts to boil reduce the heat and cook for a low boil for about 30 minutes. After is stir in peanuts, you can use unsalted or salted. If you choose to use salted, the brittle will have more of a “salted caramel” taste, and that seems to be popular these days. 

But it is your choice, whatever you think would be best. After the nuts are added stir frequently or about 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the baking soda. Continue to mix then transfer to the greased baking sheet and carefully spread the mixture on the pan. As soon as this is spread on the pan, sprinkle on the caramel corn. Let completely cool before breaking apart and enjoying.
This is pretty easy to make and comes out amazing. This looks like the high end peanut brittle you can purchase at department stores, and tastes even better. Simply pick up some treat bags, with a ribbon and a tag and you will be ready to share this sweet treat.  This makes such a cute addition to a package, a wonderful co-worker gift, a great hostess gift, or just a last minute treat to place on the table for snacking. 
If you are looking for a great snack, after school treat or if you want a break from normal boring popcorn, please give GH Cretors Popped Corn a try, you will be glad you did.  Of course, if you have a recipe that popcorn would make a great addition to, this is the popcorn to use. Make sure to pick up a bag or two, your guests will thank you. If there are no GH Cretors Popped Corn in stores near you, you can purchase this divine popcorn on Amazon as well.
