Celebration Popcorn

A perfect snack for any celebration, this popcorn recipe is sugar-coated popcorn with candy and cookies. Pick your candy and colors to match your event.

The coolest thing about this idea is – there are no rules! Tweak it to whatever you want, colors for your football team, pink or blue for a baby shower, the sky is the limit. Same for what you include! Jelly beans, mints, skittles, M&M’s, or gummies.

Once made it can be a campfire snack, hike trail mix, dessert substitute, or even a garnish.

Ingredients

Caramel Popcorn

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 cup popcorn kernels

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup golden syrup

To Serve

1 packet tiny teddy cookies

1/2 cup red and green Smarties, M&Ms, &/or skittles

Equipment

saucpan

2 baking trails

foil

Recipe Directions

  1. Put the oil in a saucepan, heat until hot then add the popcorn kernels. Cover and let pop, shaking from time to time. When the popping slows to less than every 3 seconds, remove from the heat. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Set aside.

  2. Preheat the camp oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  3. Combine the sugar, butter, and golden syrup in a saucepan then heat while stirring. Carefully boil the mixture for five minutes.

  4. Pour the sugar syrup over the popcorn and stir to coat.

  5. Line 2 baking trays with foil then grease. Place a thin layer of popcorn over the trays then put them in the camp oven. Cook for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes so it doesn’t stick.

  6. Remove the caremel popcorn from the oven and cool.

  7. Combine the cooled caramel popcorn with the tiny teddy cookies and candies to create a festive feeling. Serve in a bowl or gift wrap.
    Tip: You can add any cookies or candy to create a variety of themes.
