Cranberry Island Kitchen’s Whoopie Pies

I spied these little boxes in the frozen food case. They were pricey, but tempted me with their lovely shapes and flavors. I bought the pumpkin and the lemon. They had a few more tempting flavors as well.
They took about 2 hours to thaw, and looked just like the photos on the boxes.
I sliced them in half so I could properly sample the treats. The cake parts were very flavorful and moist. The center was a buttercream that was too plentiful and a little too sweet for my tastes. I would enjoy them more with half of the filling.
Check their web site, they are a lovely company in Maine.

Caramel Corn-so easy to make and so good

20131101-162328.jpg

I found this recipe for caramel corn and was surprised by how easy it looked. You don’t need any fancy thermometer or expensive ingredients. All you need is popcorn, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt…that’s all. I only made half of the caramel sauce since I like the popcorn to shine, through. And I used about 1 tablespoon less butter…just personal preference.

As soon as it has cooled, box it up as gifts and give it to the neighbors, or you will want to eat all of it. Trust me, it’s that good.
