Hi Design, Dining & Diapers readers! We’re twin sisters, Kristi & Kelli from Lolly Jane, a DIY/Craft blog full of tutorials, free for the taking (; Today we’re sharing a quick treat, perfect for Halloween or fall. And the easiest way to keep it fresh is in a cute mason jar, after you’ve glammed up the lids!
But first we want to say HI to Taryn, we’re so excited to be here taking over her blog for a day. We’ve been blog buddies with her for a long time now but sealed the deal when we met at SNAP! and crammed into a van full of girls to enjoy some late night onion rings and ice cream.
This is the perfect Halloween or fall treat, it’s both sweet and salty so it’s completely satisfying! And it’s super inexpensive and makes a huge batch so it’s great for class parties, neighborhoods get-togethers, etc.
To whip up your candy corn popcorn mix, you’ll need:
- 1 bag of popcorn
- 3 cubes vanilla coating
- 1 cup of candy corn
Directions are simple:
- Pop your popcorn, pick out any kernels.
- In a second bowl, melt your candy coating cubes in the microwave (you can even use white chocolate, mmm) for about 40 seconds, then mix in 20 second intervals, mixing around in the bowl until it’s nice and smooth.
- Pour candy coating over your popcorn and immediately add your candy corn. Stir until it’s well coated.
- Lay on wax paper to dry.
- Divvy into mason jars for cute and fresh storage.
To decorate the lids, paint them coordinating fall colors.
I skipped some pics, oops! BUT just take a q-tip, dip it in white acrylic paint and make white polka dots when the lids are dry.
Then take some decorative tape and wrap it around the lids.
Add a coordinating bow for a quick neighbor or teacher gift.
