#10 Cooking up a storm


I spent the whole day making yummies today.  I made candied pretzels, tamales, ANZAC bisquits and brownies ( all vegan of course).  The boys even helped a little.


These are my favoite holiday plates and cookie jar.


I bagged up the pretzels to give out as treats.   Here’s the recipe- you can use pretzels or popcorn.


6 cups freshly popped popcorn or pretzels

2 cups nuts (your choice- I used peanuts)

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup earth balance buttery sticks (or margarine)

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 C).  Coat large baking pan with buttery stick or spray.  Combine pretzels and nuts in prepared pan.  Place in heating oven while preparing glaze.

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, syrup, salt and buttery sticks over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves.  Boil for 4 minutes without stirring.  Remove from heat.  Mix in vanilla and baking soda.   Pour glaze over pretzel mixture, stirring well to coat.

Bake mixture until dry, stirring occassionally, for about 1 hour.  Allow to cool then break into clumps.
