happy food: caramel apple monster munch


One of my favorite memories of my grandfather was eating Crunch n' Munch while we sat outside on a Sunday afternoon gliding on his homemade rocker just big enough for the two of us. Even today, with my grandfather gone so many years now, if I close my eyes I can remember how he would pour the caramel clusters in my sticky little hand. I sure adored that man. He taught me everything I know today about generosity and patience.

I thought of him when I came across this recipe for Monster Munch on FoodNetwork. com. It involves all my favorite autumn treats -- popcorn, caramel and apples. It's an easy enough recipe to make at home, especially since we're having friends over this weekend. It's the perfect snack as we settle in after a late lunch and a walk through the leaves on a crisp autumn afternoon.
