I got this recipe from my good friend Val over at Corn Bean Pigs and Kids. She is a busy Wife, Mother, and Farmer, and sharing good food and helping others  turning them into traditions is something she loves to do, and this one will become your new tradition! If you don't already follow her, You should! I love when we get to Chat live with her from her "tractor" during harvest, or taste test the latest crazy Lay's chips flavors together! She is so fun! and great "farm" recipes to boot!

I love that you don't need a candy thermometer or any fancy equipment to make this! Just follow the steps, a few minutes over the stove and then a few steps in the microwave! Easy Peazy!

The Caramel hardens into a crispy, non sticky coating when it cools. So no mess! (Well.. that's only if  you can keep your hands out of it long enough to let it cool!)
