Soul Food Saturday #8

Good Morning, Happy Saturday and for some like us, Welcome to the first weekend of Summer Vacation! Yep, yesterday was our last day of school, and I think I'm just as excited as Monkey. I can't help it. I love having him home with me all summer; and am looking for lots of fun in the sun with my favorite little man.

This week Bekki is celebrating graduates every where and the start to a great summer vacation!

I want to congratulate all of the new graduates of 2013! Whether it was middle school, high school or college. Congrats to you all! This one is for you! For the days that treats had to be on the go, this is a tribute. But because summer vacation has started, we can take things a little easier now.  Cut these up as you wish, but however you do it there's plenty for a party. Grab your favorite drink and have it however you would like. A snack, a dessert or just because we're celebrating our new grads and summer vacation!!!  

Caramel Popcorn Treats
3 TBS butter or margarine
1 (10oz.) package marshmallows
3 packages butter lovers’ microwave popcorn
½ c. mini chocolate chips
¼ c. butterscotch chips
Caramel sauce for drizzling
Cooking spray for lining pan

1. Follow package directions to pop microwave popcorn.

( *Note: To ensure you get no unpopped kernels in your dish; Allow popcorn to cool slightly. Before opening shake bag to allow kernels to fall to the bottom of bag. Tilt bag to the side and slowly drop kernels into another bowl.)
2. In a large saucepan or medium stockpot melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
3. Add popcorn and stir until well coated.
4. With a buttered spatula evenly press mixture into a 9x13x2 pan lined with foil and coated with cooking spray.
5. Sprinkle chocolate and butterscotch chips over the top.
6. Drizzle caramel sauce over the top as desired. *a little extra is always great J
*Note : I used the one made for caramel milk, because of the ease of the squeeze bottle.

Cool completely and cut in desired size squares
