    Default Snacks

    My friend once taught me to just take all the "I have less than a full serving"
    snacks and cereals and put them together for a snack.
    Because of this thread I made the kids a "special" snack. It was chocolate
    chunks,. white chocolate chips, a half of a single size bag of m & m's, about
    two hands full of popcorn, a cup of frosted mini wheats, about a cup of teddy
    cheddy's, and about a cup of cocoa puffs.
    I got rid of an assortment of not enough for two foods and they were thrilled.
    Who wouldn't be with all that sugar?

    Thanks for all the great snack ideas. One of my favorites is just raisins,
    choc chips and peanuts. I'll be making some when I get home!

    Default Snacks

    Caramel Corn

    8 cups popped popcorn
    1 cup peanuts (optional)
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup margarine
    3 tablespoons corn syrup
    1/4 teaspoon each salt & baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Arrange the popcorn (and peanuts, if you are using them) in a well
    oiled 9" by 13" pan. Get out a 2 quart sauce pan and combine the
    brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup and salt over low heat. After
    the margarine melts, cook without stirring for 3 minutes. It should
    be bubbling gently during the 3 minutes. Stir in the baking soda
    and vanilla. Quickly pour this over the pan of popcorn. Mix gently
    to coat the popcorn evenly. Bake the pan at 300 degrees for about
    15 minutes. Break it up into pieces and serve. This stuff is so
    good that it doesn't last long, but if you do end up with leftovers,
    store them in a sealed container, or bag. It is good tucked into
    lunch boxes too.

    This is similar to Cracker Jack, except the prize is that it costs
    so little and is so easy to make. Besides that, the flavor is soooo
    much better, you will always look on the boxed stuff as inferior
    after tasting this recipe.

    Cheese Puffs

    3/4 cup melted margarine
    1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded cheese
    2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon paprika
    Liberal Dash of Tabasco Sauce

    Get out your trusty big bowl. Combine the melted margarine, cheese,
    flour, salt, paprika, and Tabasco. Stir it all together with a fork
    until it forms a dough similar to pie crust. Form the mixture into
    small balls about the size of a marble. Arrange them on a cookie
    sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or so. Makes between 50
    and 60 balls.
