Cooking Thursday

Laura had some yummy caramel corn at Alaina's birthday party a few weeks ago.  It had M&M's in it, so you can change it up for the season, depending on the color of M&M's you choose. It was fun and delicious too!

Yum! I love caramel corn. I could get in trouble eating it for breakfast. I never thought of mixing in M&Ms. Sounds good to me!
