I’m excited to announce that 30days will soon have a few new friendly faces. As much as I love creating anything I can get my hands on, I decided to ask some people I admire to contribute a couple of times a month and share their ideas. I got in touch with a few people from different backgrounds (all creative) and am thrilled that they agreed.
First up is Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom. She is great in every creative category possible, but I asked her if she would be willing to share a few of her cooking ideas, recipes, etc. Thank you Leigh Anne!
Hi – I’m Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom. I have been a follower of Thirty Handmade Days for a while now so when Mique contacted me and asked if I’d like to be a regular contributor I was thrilled. I live in the Pacific Northwest and summer has finally arrived and it seems like the flavor of the summer this year is s’more. I have seen s’more recipes popping up all over the blogosphere. Every imaginable s’more flavored treat you can imagine. S’mores and summer do just seem to go together. One of our favorite summer time activities is making s’mores over the firepit in our backyard but now you don’t need to wait for a fire to enjoy the yumminess of a s’more! I decided to turn one of my favorite treats – caramel corn into a s’more too. Let’s just say the combo works! Very well!
What’s not to love about caramel, chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker combined together?? I started out with my trustworthy, easy to make, never fail me caramel corn recipe. So easy because it is made in a brown paper bag in the microwave. I spread the caramel corn out onto parchment paper on two large cookie sheets. Then topped it with some mini marshmallows and Golden Graham cerel.
Then let the chocolate set up. I was going to put mine in the fridge in the garage but my husband had a stinky fresh crab in there and I was afraid the popcorn would end up tasting like crab – yuck!! After it is set up you can commence munching, you can do it before it sets up too, it is just a little messier!
I decided to share so I packaged it up in some clear bags and added a fun little tag that Mique designed for me! Who wouldn’t enjoy S’more Fun!!?? You can download the tag too and just print them off.
