Toffee-Covered Popcorn

…. aka: Homemade Fiddle Faddle. I realize this doesn’t qualify as dinner. Well, it could qualify as a meal if you were in that frame of mind, and you know I don’t judge when it comes to that sort of thing. I’m probably going to get in a heap of trouble with dentists and orthodontists and cardiologists everywhere for even suggesting that you make this at all, but I think like a food blogger and not a normal person, so this is what I’m sharing with you today.

I don’t know why I got it in my head that I needed to make Fiddle Faddle at home. But I’m the stubborn sort (ask anyone) and when I get an idea, I can’t let it go until I give it a go. So I made my first batch of this popcorn yesterday afternoon. Only one thing went wrong (and it was my fault completely); I mistakenly over measured on the amount of popcorn required for the recipe. Thus, my popcorn:toffee balance was way off – by about four cups. That didn’t stop my girls from sneaking clusters of it every time they walked past where it was cooling on the island, but they BOTH said (without realizing I had messed up) “this needs more toffee stuff.”
