Halloween Popcorn Cake | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Ok, I’m warning you – I’m going to talk about the big “P” word again.  Yep, talking about Pinterest again.  You’ve got to know by now that I’m a fan.  I spend some time there every day, and as of last night, I had pinned over 2100 items.  And I’ve made multiple things that I’ve found on there.

But sometimes – I wonder…  is it sucking all of the creativity out of me??

I started thinking sometime last month that I wanted to do some Halloween recipes during October.  So I started brainstorming.  And all I could think of were ideas that I had seen on Pinterest.  I’m not the most creative person to start off with, but all my brain would think of was things that I had already seen.

So, at this point, I haven’t come up with anything original.  I still have some time, so we’ll see if I can come up with anything, but in the meantime, you just may see some things that other people have made.

Or, I may just recycle ideas that I’ve already made here before.  Like this popcorn cake that I made back in 2009.

Yesterday, I talked about food in regards to childhood memories.  I’m adding one more thing onto my list of things that make me think of my childhood – this popcorn cake.  I remember my mom making these cakes – and although it could be made year round (just change out the mix-ins) I always associate it with Halloween.  Because my mom would add candy corn, and this is the time of year that candy is on the shelves!

You really can’t get much easier than this recipe.  Kind of like a rice krispie treat, but made with popcorn instead of cereal.  And you can add in whatever your heart desires.  So this could really be a fun one to make with the kids, especially once Halloween is over and you are wondering what to do with all that leftover Halloween candy.  But beware – because this cake is quite addictive.  You won’t be able to stop at just one slice!!
