Hey you guys!  How are you doing?  Ready for a great week?  How was your weekend?  I hope it was full of lots of good food and wine and relaxation and some fun activity too.  Mine was!

Mr. Allie had a boys night last night so it was just me and the kiddos.  I always like to treat them to something fun and special on those kind of evenings, so we called up Grammie and all went out for dinner and a movie.  We saw Mr. Peabody and Sherman and it was so. great!  We all loved it.  So funny and cute and the story was so much fun.  It's really a good one for the whole family.

But enough about me!  I am so excited for today's post, because it's celebrates two very special bloggers, and their growing families!

Baby shower invite[1]

Surprise! Today we are inviting you ALL to a virtual baby shower honoring Kelly from Life Made Sweeter and Hilary from My Own Blog Review. To celebrate, we are sharing 12 recipes and crafts that are ready to "pop."  Make sure to "pop" over and check out everyone's posts. Congratulations Kelly and Hilary!

How cute is that???  I love the theme!  And I'm so happy to be a part of this fun event!  I've always wanted to participate in something like this, and I'm especially psyched because I adore Kelly, and I'm just beginning my friendship with Hilary, and she seems like so much fun ;)

So.  Since the idea here was to create something around the "POP!" theme, I chose to develop a dessert recipe that utilizes popcorn.  I thought it might be fun (and delish) to infuse cream with buttered popcorn, and get that unmistakable buttery/salty flave going in a silky, sweet custard.  Kind of like caramel corn, but only in crème brulee form.

Buttered Popcorn Creme Brulee | Baking a MomentYou guys.  YOU! GUYS!!!  Omg.  I seriously thought it could not be possible to improve upon crème brulee.  I mean, it's a classic for a reason!  It's perfection, right?  So creamy, and eggy, and sweet, and then that crackly burnt sugar top...  How can you improve upon that???

Well I'll tell ya how. You just pop up some buttery salty popcorn and add it to the mix.

Mind. BLOWN!

Buttered Popcorn Creme Brulee | Baking a MomentI beg you to give this recipe a try!  The buttery flavor is so killer!  And the little kick of salt plays so crazy good off the caramelized sugar topping.  Helloooo, salted caramel!  These little babies didn't last more than a day in my house, and that's saying a lot for a house that's overflowing with desserts on the daily ;)

Now check this out- ten other fun recipes, all centered around the same theme!  There are *pop*sicles, *pop*pyseeds, *pop*pers, lolli*pop*s, and more *pop*corn!
