Well it's official, we've winterized our house and succumbed to turning our heat on. We were going to try and at least make it until Thanksgiving, but alas, when Beau could see his breath this morning inside, he decided that the battle had been officially lost. Which brings me to today's post - we're going for comfort, my friends. Pure, unadulterated, extra junk in my trunk, wintery comfort. Not to mention, it's football season. What better way to watch others exert energy than with a giant bowl of homemade caramel popcorn at your fingertips? And if you think you can make a nice big batch of this stuff and maintain portion control - you're fooling yourself.

Also, I'm sure you could use agave syrup or agave nectar in place of maple syrup (due to costliness) or in place of honey (due to hard coreness of being vegan). Regardless, indulge and enjoy!!
