As a kid the toy surprise was generally a disappointment. Fast forward 30 years, and today's surprise is that there seem to be fewer peanuts in a box.
This instructable creates a couple of carry-out boxes of this tasty treat in under 10 minutes with the help of the microwave.
Let's get started...
Step 1: Gather materials
New/clean brown paper bag
4 cups popped popcorn, checked carefully for unpopped kernals
1/2 cup lightly salted peanuts (far more than is in today's product)
2 Tbsp margarine (or butter if budget allows)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 Tbsp dark honey (or molasses)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
*according to Frito-Lay there are at least 20 peanuts per 4 oz package of Cracker Jacks. According to me/author, that's still not enough!
