My six year old, created his own recipe, Confetti CandyLandy Popcorn, for the Wyoming Chocolate Festival. He wanted to take popcorn, M&M's, mini gummi bears, and pretzel pieces, mix them all together and cover them with white chocolate. He did everything except melt the chocolate. It was great math practice and he measured and counted everything out! This was his display (his poor little fingers hurt from making the pinwheels).
Isn't it funtastic? He won Best Presentation and 2nd place in his category; Everything Else. I love how the sweet and salty mix together and the gummi bears add a fun little twist! Are you wondering how to make his yummy creation?
Here's the recipe:
*Recipe By Little Crazy of Crazy Daisy
20 cups popcorn, kernels removed
2 1/2 cups M&M's
2 1/2 cups mini gummi bears
2 1/4 cups of pretzel sticks that have been broken into 4 or five pieces
2 bags of white candy melts
Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. Spray wax paper with cooking spray. Set aside. Mix popcorn, candy, and pretzel pieces together in a LARGE bowl we used a roasting pan. Melt candy melts as directed on package. Pour melted white chocolate over popcorn mixture and mix well to coat evenly. Spread onto prepared baking sheets. Let dry. Enjoy.I'm sharing this yumminess with
