• Tell Your Friends

We’re back with another installment of Weekday Crafternoon! Today I have a great gift idea for a group. You know the drill — the holidays are looming and you have a group of coworkers, your kids’ teachers, or some other group of people you need to come up with gifts for. You want to do something personal, but you don’t want to spend a lot.

Well, that is my spin on those ubiquitous tins of stale popcorn we all seem to get around the holidays, but instead of trite and expected, you’ll be giving a homemade snack packaged in a personalized tin. Also, here is a secret: this is one of the projects I’ll be doing this weekend at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Is that exciting, or what?

Gift for a Group

Are you dying for the Salted Caramel Corn recipe I mention in the video? Well, it’s your lucky day:

That’s it for this week’s Weekday Crafternoon! Be sure to check back in next week, when I’ll have another handmade gift how-to. In the meantime, pop some popcorn and tell me: what groups do you have to buy gifts for this year? I have to tackle my daughter’s preschool teachers and a pack of great coworkers.

    I'm confused…
    Recipe directs me to pop the corn in the oil (1 T coconut oil or butter – correct?).
    Then I'm to mix the sugar/water mix with the butter (?????)
    Can you straighten me out? Thanks, it sounds great!
