Candy Corn-Peanut Popcorn Balls

Candy Corn-Peanut Popcorn Balls @ NancyCOctober will soon be over, and I almost forgot that this is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month! So what better treat to make than some popcorn balls? I found this recipe at About.com and tried it with peanuts added in, since they had tasted so good in the Candy Corn “PayDay” Mix I had made awhile ago. Yum! These Candy Corn-Peanut Popcorn Balls are very easy to make, so this is a great recipe to start out with if you’ve never made popcorn balls before. It’s a great treat for kids and adults—who wouldn’t like munching on a fun popcorn ball like this? Continue reading

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

I made this soup on a chilly, rainy day and it was just what I needed to warm up! Not only that, but it felt great to enjoy a creamy soup that was healthy, too.

The recipe is from a new book called The Everything Vegan Meal Prep Cookbook by Marly McMillen Beelman, and I received a copy of it to review. As I went through the book, this Creamy Pumpkin Soup sounded like the perfect thing to try now that the days are getting cooler. Continue reading

Candy Corn M&M’s Crispy Treats

Crispy treats are great, and I think they’re even better when you make them with extra add-ins! Last winter, I made some Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Crispy Treats which were really good, so I thought I’d try an autumn version with candy corn. I found this recipe at MyRecipes.com which had both candy corn and M&M’s. I thought I’d add some chopped peanuts too, since I like the candy corn-chocolate-peanut combination (you could use cashews instead of peanuts, if you like). Continue reading
