Some Sweet and Easy Treats

I've been making some easy treats for the family and thought that I'd share a few...

This stuff is YUMMY!
Here's the recipe...

1 bag microwave popcorn(the plain seems to pop more without all of the leftover kernels)
20 large marshmallows
1 cup brown sugar
1 and 1/2 sticks of butter
1 tsp. of vanilla(optional, I never use it)
2 tsp. of kayro syrup(sometimes I use regular syrup)
Makes about 12 clumps

Melt marshmallows for about a minute in the microwave,  add syrup.

Melt butter and add brown sugar.  Let it come to a boil and stir making sure to not scorch.  Let it boil until it comes to a soft ball when adding droplets into cool water.

Add all ingredients together and mix well, then pour over popped popcorn.  Make into clumps on wax paper and let cool.

A perfect simple sweet snack in minutes!

Here's another sweet treat!

I just had some of this a few minutes ago and thought what a light and wonderful treat it was!  But of course I love strawberries and blueberries!

Here's how I made it...

I bought two bags of frozen strawberries, 1 bag of frozen blueberries, a loaf of angel food cake, cream cheese fruit dip and strawberry glaze.

Tear some angel food cake to layer bottom,
Spread some glaze over it,
then layer strawberries.  Do twice and then spread cream cheese fruit dip.  Pour entire bag of blueberries on top.  I had a little bit of cream cheese dip left, so I smeared it over the blueberries and then added the rest of the angel food cake and the strawberries.   

The frozen fruit tends to not make the angel food cake "mushy" being stored in the fridge.
 Hope you enjoy...I sure did! 

No cooking involved and it only took a few minutes1

My kind of stuff, lol!
