Old Dutch Caramel Corn

If you love caramel popcorn this is a good shortcut recipe.  My mom got this yummy recipe from her co-worker (also found in the Old Dutch website).  I made one revision.  I replaced the corn syrup with the same amount of honey.  If you have neither honey nor corn syrup you can make a simple sugar before continuing on to step 2.  

Instruction for simple sugar:  In a large saucepan add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/8 cup water.  Cook in low heat until sugar is dissolved and the mixture is clear.

1 cup butter 
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
one 175g bad of Old Dutch popcorn twist

  1. Pour popcorn twists into a large roaster pan and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan bring to boil the butter, brown sugar, and syrup.  Cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add baking soda.  This will foam up and the mixture will thicken.  (This is why you will need a large saucepan.)  Allow the foam to cook down slightly and remove from heat.
  4. Add vanilla and stir.
  5. Pour caramel mixture over popcorn twists and stir until well mixed.
  6. Bake in 225 F oven, uncovered for 50 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, and pour onto wax paper to cool.
  8. When cool break apart and store in a covered container.

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.



Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
toothpicks
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
