I live in popcorn country, and there's even a town nearby that has a "Popcorn Days" celebration. This is a good snack and also good for entertaining during the holidays, especially because it can be made ahead of time.
For a crunchy snack that suits the season, try this one. I've been stirring up batches of the distinctive brittle since 1975. With popcorn, almonds and candied cherries tossed together in a sweet crisp coating, it's a festive favorite we enjoy every year.
These adorable treats were inspired by the chocolate-covered ice cream cones I used when I was little. These cone are even better since there is no melting or dripping! They'll go fast at bake sales. —Julie Beckwith, Crete, Illinois
