When you combine an easy to make recipe and cheap ingredients you have yourself a real party hit! Check out our simple mermaid-inspired party popcorn mix that will be perfect for your next soiree!
One of my favourite frugal investments has been our air popcorn popper. Not only is it easy to use, but it makes for a cheaper, healthier alternative to microwave popcorn. It’s also a great base for sweet party treats.
All you need for the mermaid popcorn:
2 cups popcorn kernels
2 cups white melting chocolate wafers
1tbsp of coconut oil
*All of these add-ons are optional but delicious!
Pop the kernels in batches to avoid burning. Fill up to your machine’s fill line and make sure to remove any unpopped kernels from each batch.
Melt the chocolate wafers over a double boiler with coconut oil. Divide into two equal parts once melted. Add one colour of food colouring in each bowl and mix.
Put prepared popcorn into two separate bowls.
Add melted chocolate into each bowl. Cover completely. Add sprinkles, pearls and glitter if desired. Once the chocolate has hardened, combine the two colours together.
