“Born in a stable, cradled in a manger, He came forth from heaven to live on earth as mortal man and to establish the kingdom of God. During His earthly ministry, He taught men the higher law. His glorious gospel reshaped the thinking of the world. He blessed the sick. He caused the lame to walk, the blind to see, the deaf to hear. He even raised the dead to life. To us He has said, ‘Come, follow me.’
“As we seek Christ, as we find Him, as we follow Him, we shall have the Christmas spirit, not for one fleeting day each year, but as a companion always. We shall learn to forget ourselves. We shall turn our thoughts to the greater benefit of others” — President Thomas S. Monson, “In Search of the Christmas Spirit.”
I got this recipe from my friend Pat about 33 years ago. I haven’t tasted a better caramel popcorn recipe. It’s so yummy and easy to make. This recipe makes enough for 3 gallons of popcorn.
- 1 (1 lb.) package brown sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
Bring to boil stirring continually. Remove from heat and add:
- 1 square of butter
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
Put pot back on heat and cook to soft ball stage.
Pour over popped corn. Shape into balls and wrap in waxed paper for Christmas Eve!
