Leap Around the World winner and more

Hello and Happy Monday to Everyone!

After a week with issues concerning my blog and Blogger, I am back and it feels like a lifetime. The first order of business is to announce the winner of the Leap Around the World Blog Hop.  I did a random number generator and it selected number 20 to win the Creativity Bug – Leap Around the World blog candy.

The winner is ---- Carol Sue from Carol Sue Designs Scrapbooking

Congratulations to Carol Sue! I will be contacting you shortly to get your snail mail address to send out your prize.

The second order of business is to share a few digital images.

Lastly, I wanted to share a recipe for Jello Popcorn. Make a few batches in different colors to serve as a rainbow treat for St. Patrick’s Day.

8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons light corn syrup (honey is a good substitute)
1/2 cup sugar
1 3.5oz box jello, any flavor (not the sugar free kind)

  • ·        Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a jelly roll pan with foil or parchment. If using foil, spray lightly with non-stick spray and set aside. Place popcorn in an extra large mixing bowl.
  • ·        Place butter and syrup in a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar and Jello and stir to combine.
  • ·        Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers. Continue simmering for 5 minutes.
  • ·        After the sugar mixture simmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Be careful, it’s super hot!! Mix right away and keep stirring so everything gets well coated. Spread mixture onto prepared pan and spread out evenly.
  • ·        Pop in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
  • ·        Remove the pan from the oven and let cool to room temp. Then break into pieces and enjoy!

Have a wonderful day!
