Caramel Puffs

Caramel Puffs

Do you ever get those neighbor/family gifts of food that just is not yummy? Each year our 83 year old neighbor hand makes fruitcake and gives us a huge old wrapped piece. We just don’t have the heart to tell her that we are yet to eat it…yuck! So for all she knows, we “love that fruitcake!”
This year we got Caramel Puffs for one of our gifts, and I had never had them before. Apparently I really liked them, because Sean had one taste of it and I inhaled the rest! SERIOUSLY – not kidding.
So Sean had to text and ask for the recipe. Little did we know it was so easy, and on the back of the bag as well! So on Christmas Eve, I had to run out and get the stuff so we could munch on it all of Christmas day. Also, the recipe only uses half of the bag, so we are going to make another batch for New Years Eve.

Original recipe from the back of the corn puffs bag!
