Before I talk about ANYTHING else – this recipe was a struggle – it took 3 attempts, burned hand, molasses stuck on the kitchen floor to perfect this recipe. I think the main problem was that I had to reduce the proportions ( trying to do math in my head is not my strong point and BOY did it show) — but in the end my dad and I created PERFECT Cracker Jack THAT my Dad ate SO much of he got a stomach ache

I am VERY excited this is the fourth recipe from Marie the first recipe ( Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe ( Recipes from Marie) )

If you have no idea who Marie is – go HERE – I found a vintage recipe box in a local antique store so I am making and posting one her recipes weekly on Tuesday

Here is my dad popping the popcorn – you can use microwavable popcorn but I prefer using fresh popcorn when I can. I have never made Homemade Cracker Jack so I was REALLY excited too
