We are here to paaaartaaaay!  Ladies.  Gentlemen.  Ring the alarm.  Ring the alarm.

The tea bell that is!  Because it is time for tea service.  With Charles Viancin and his gorgeous line of kitchen products that is Inspired by Nature.  My first thought to the gorgeous tea pot and cup pictured here was when could I fill it with piping hot tea!

Because November speaks of cozy sweaters, kindling fires and steeping tea.  Well, in most places.  Over here in Cali you sometimes have to close the windows and blast the a/c just to feel like it is remotely fall.  Ha!  (In fact, I think my a/c is actually running right now!)

Popping Into the Month of November-Pumpkin Praline Popcorn

20131111-221125.jpg

It’s that time again.  Time to relax with a bowl of sweet and seasonal popcorn.  Full of pumpkin spice, sweet cream cheese icing, gooey caramel and crunchy almond slivers.

So follow along on how to make this and dig in.

What you’ll need:

2 bags light popcorn
2/3 cup pumpkin spice cake mix
8 oz white chocolate chips
3 Tb cream cheese icing
2 Tb caramel sauce
2 Tb slivered almonds

I used this Pillsbury Pumpkin Caramel Delight cake mix for this deliciously sweet popcorn.

Pop the popcorn and pick through the unpopped kernels.

Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in a microwave safe dish for 90 seconds, stirring at 30 second intervals.

VERY QUICKLY stir in the cake mix and the cream cheese icing. The mixture will harden.

20131111-221259.jpg

Using your hands, work into the popcorn in a large bowl.

Spread popcorn in a casserole dish, drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle with almonds. Sprinkle with orange colored sugar (optional). Chill to harden and serve.
