How is it even possible? How could I not know that this snack is stocked in most large grocery stores? I love the snack aisle so how did I miss it all these years? How could I go from not knowing about something to being obsessed with it? I blame my obsession with Caramel Puff Corn on Fountain Hills resident Mary Smith. Mary was featured in my second cookbook Rescued Recipes quite a few years ago for her delicious Ham Rolls, but I hadn’t heard from her since. Then, out of the blue I get an email with this:”I made puff corn & brought it in bags to a ladies’ luncheon yesterday. They loved it and kept reaching in their bags for more!” She now calls herself “Treatsmaker Mary” and so do I!Mary got the recipe from her friend Wisconsinite Marilyn Daniel who has share many treasured recipes with Mary in the past. I didn’t even know puff corn existed, and now I had a recipe that will knock people’s socks off. Life is sweet! There are several varieties of this snack in the chip aisle under brand names like Barrel O’ Fun Corn Pops and O.KE.DOKE Corn Puffs. You take a bag home and then, with four simple ingredients, you turn it into crazy good caramel corn. No need to mess with a candy thermometer. No need to pop corn and then have to comb through it picking out the uncooked kernels. Just mix and pour. Let the magic happen in the oven over low heat, then let cool and enjoy. Thanks Mary! When folks make this, they’re going to be absolutely “bowled” over!
