Today is an appetizer day, for all you party Hosts and your
family get together,s. These are so good. You can use popcorn or try pretzels. I would use more than 2 cups of popcorn though, such as 3 or 4 cups. You could probably make brittle with this recipe too. I really like blogging because I get ideas as I type. If you have any other ideas, please share them with us. Until tomorrow.
