I love this time of year! I think I say that all year long about every season and every time of year. I do love that there are things to look forward to all year long, but I really, really love Christmas.

Caramel Cashew Crunch Popcorn I’ve been listening to Christmas music every day, making cookies, and watching Christmas movies with my family. It’s so fun to watch all of the movies that I loved as a kid and get to see my kids fall in love with those same movies.

Caramel Cashew Crunch Popcorn I like to make special treats for our movie nights. Some nights we have hot chocolate, other nights we have popcorn. We all really love popcorn, and this Caramel Cashew Crunch Popcorn is a great one!

Caramel Cashew Crunch Popcorn Not only is it great for movie nights, but it would be a great homemade gift. It looks and tastes as good as any expensive popcorn you can buy.Caramel Cashew Crunch Popcorn

    I love these flavored popcorn recipes. Each year we make four or five different recipes.
