Foodie Love ~ Zombie Boogers

Looks appetizing doesn't it....

It is actually super delicious candied popcorn that we colored green. I had so much fun making this popcorn and I will most definitely be using this recipe for other events in other colors. So good!

I can't actually take any credit for this recipe. I found it via Pinterest on a blog called Paper & Parcel. I found it super easy to make and it was an absolute hit. Give it a try for your next event!

The Necessities:
~ 20 Cups of Popcorn (We used air popped)
~ 1 Cup of Butter
~ 1 Cup of Granulated Sugar
~ 1/2 Cup of White Corn Syrup
~ 1 Tsp of Salt
~ 1 Tsp of Vanilla
~ Food Coloring (I used Wilton gel coloring)
~ 2 Tsp of Baking Soda

The Process:
~ Preheat oven to 250F
~ Put popcorn into two shallow baking or casserole dishes
~ In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and stir in sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Keep stirring to dissolve sugar.
~ Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 4 minutes
~ Pull off of the heat and add vanilla and food coloring quickly
~ Add baking soda. The mixture will become cloudy and should almost double in size.
~ Once everything is evenly integrated, pour over the popcorn and stir until evenly coated
~ Place popcorn in heated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes
~ Remove from the oven and allow to cool for no more than 5 minutes
~ Break apart popcorn and allow to cool
~ Time to eat!
