My family has been making this recipe for well over 40 years. Need a sure seller for a bake sale or fundraiser? This is it. For 20 years, I packaged cute, ribbon-tied treat bags in school colors for nearly every athletic and band fund-raiser. For my own family, I package in individual serving ziplocks, then place in a pretty basket on the counter.

I can never understand why people buy those stale, artificial boxes of caramel corn and butter toffee popcorn when you can make your own delicious, buttery snack at home for a fraction of the price. Give it a try... it's quick and easy!

Store bought roasted seeds are pretty good, but nothing is like homemade roasted pumpkin seeds. The toasted nutty flavor is so addictive, you’ll have a hard time keeping your hand...
