Making Popcorn Halloween Treats
I love making our own popcorn as do the kids. We buy the kernels ready to make and then use butter to pop them in a pan. They will make them ahead of a family movie night and it’s the only food we allow to be eaten in front of the TV in our house.
For this recipe, you will need 8 cups of popped popcorn. If you are making from scratch that’s approximately 4 tablespoons of kernels. You could always make a little more and snack on the rest.
