A Christmas Gift Everyone Loves

If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas I can tell you from experience that everyone I know loves to receive homemade goodies. Cookies, breads, cupcakes, biscotti… you can hardly go wrong. And then there’s homemade caramel corn. OMG! This is a gift that everyone absolutely loves! It’s super crispy, light, and so delicious! That’s what I give every Christmas and people start asking me in October if I’m making caramel corn again this year. That’s because there is no store-bought product that even comes close. And my recipe is simple. You don’t need a candy thermometer or any fancy equipment.

I just pop the corn in the microwave (my paper bag method) and stir in an easy syrup (made in five minutes) with butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and corn syrup (this is not high fructose corn syrup – they are not the same). Then you stir it up and bake it. I don’t make it for myself very often because I can’t stop eating it. So it’s a Christmas treat for me too. If you want to feel like Santa Claus next week and see big smiles on happy faces, give homemade caramel corn. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    Jenny, your recipe for Caramel Corn is absolutely delicious. My husband & I made several batches to give away as Christmas gifts this year. I have to admit, the first batch didn’t make it beyond our kitchen; it is so good!!!

    Dear Jenny
    So many thanks for your wonderful recipes. Polish cooking is close
    to my heart as grandma born in Poland, but passed before I got to
    to cook with her.
    Here is something she made:
    It has sauerkraut.. kinda wide noodles
    mushrooms and pork meat. Top, sour cream.
    Familiar to you? Have a recipe please?

      My mother used to make something similar, with wide noodles, sauerkraut, and mushrooms but I never got her recipe. I’m still working on it.
