And this kind of uninhibited frenzy is just not restricted to kids alone. Grown-ups too have an inscrutable affinity for this all time-favorite dessert.

Stir Up Some Passion

The candy corn recipe is the perfect way to bring together some sinful ingredients- candies, marshmallows and crispy rice cereal. Here's what the recipe requires:

    ½ cup butter
    10 cups crispy rice cereal
    9 cups miniature marshmallows

Set the ball rolling by bringing together the rice cereal and candy corn in a large bowl. Keep the mixture aside. In another large bowl, melt butter and marshmallows over low heat, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Remove from the heat and add a dash of red and yellow colors. Mix the cereal and the melted marshmallows, stirring as fast as you can. Spread this mixture on a large, greased baking pan.

Crispy Tips To a Feisty Trip

The human being is a dynamic species that is always on the move. Whether it is their living conditions or their intelligence, everything is improving. So it is little wonder that traveling today is safer, more comfortable and enjoyable than ever before. But that doesn't mean costs have only escalated. Along with the expensive ones, there are several cheaper options out there as well in terms of plane tickets and accommodation costs.

Besides that, it is also important to know how to choose a location for your vacation in the first place.

If you have friends and relatives who travel a lot, then you can ask them for information regarding places. Also, you can read travel and tourism related magazines and journals and articles in print media and on the internet. You may even choose the place randomly, to add to the fun quotient. If you don't like surprises, then plan well ahead by contacting travel guides and agencies. You may like sea-sides or hill stations or even forests and deserts. Likewise, make a list of such places and also make a shortlist of the places that fulfill all the criteria like affordable rates of travel and living, interesting places to visit etc.
