by Laura

This year Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes and Karo® Syrup – trusted baking products that have helped people create beautiful homemade bread, baked goods and delicious desserts for more than 100 years – are teaming up to launch the Baking A Difference campaign to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to help end childhood hunger in America through the power of baking.

It is hard to believe that one in five children in the U.S. struggle with hunger. They cannot rely on having access to the daily nutritious food they need to grow and thrive. Now Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes and Karo® Syrup are uniting bakers everywhere for the Baking A Difference campaign. The campaign is helping the No Kid Hungry campaign end childhood hunger in America.

Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes and Karo® Syrup are calling all bakers to bake for a cause.

If you like to mix up treats in the kitchen, then they challenge you to bake for someone you love and bake a difference. Inspire family, friends, teachers, neighbors and others to get involved in the Baking A Difference campaign and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Collectively, we can all harness the power of baking recipes. Bake a difference together to end child hunger in America.

To inspire people to make a difference for No Kid Hungry when they participate in the Baking A Difference campaign, Fleischmann’s® Yeast, Fleischmann’s® Simply Homemade® Baking Mixes and Karo® Syrup have partnered with America’s Test Kitchen and Joy Wilson of Joy the Baker blog. They teamed up to create baking tips and unique twists on classic recipes to encourage more bakers to bake a difference.

I was asked to participate by making a twist on their classic caramel corn just in time for tailgating season.

I took my inspiration from my favorite caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Co.  for this Caramel Apple Pie Popcorn. The apple gets a nice dip in the traditional caramel followed by a coating of white chocolate and a dusting of cinnamon sugar. They are divine.

So I took the traditional Karo® Syrup caramel corn recipe. I added some dry apple cider mix and cinnamon to the caramel to give it that nice apple pie flavor. Then, the caramel coats some popcorn along with some dried apples. Once the caramel popcorn cooks and cools, it gets a drizzle of melted white chocolate and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar! This I took my inspiration from my favorite caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Co.  for this Caramel Apple Pie Popcorn. It tastes just like the caramel apple treat I love.
