Halloween Sweet Treats!

So today has been packed with creating so many tasty treats. I made a cake, nothing special just a funfetti Halloween version MMMmmm....My favorite. Then I moved on to the caramel popcorn and caramel apples. This was so fun and easy you can't even imagine. Here is what you will need:

1 Stick of butter(what no one said it was healthy)
Apples(I like granny smith)
Popsicle sticks(same number as your apples of course)
3 Bags of microwave popcorn
1 small sauce pan
a spoon
a plate 
a large bowl
3 bags of caramels

First unwrap all the caramels, yeah this really is the not so fun part.lol Put them all in your small sauce pan with the stick of butter. Turn the stove on as low as you can and let sit. It will take a while before everything will melt together just stir it every now and then to help it along. While this is melting pop the 3 bags of popcorn and put it in a large container. I picked out the unpopped kernels :O). Then pressed stick straight into the center of each apple to make a nice handle for eating! After the caramel is melted and blended with the butter spoon about 1/2 of it over the popcorn and mix well(or if your container has a lid shake well). Take your apples and roll them one at a time in the caramel. You may need a spoon to get it all. After you cover it hold straight up and down over the pot to remove some of the extra then stand on the plate. Enjoy! Time to go finish my eyeball for dinner! I'll be back to share that little secret later..............

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
