Yes, COTTON CANDY again! Ha! I hope you’re all collectively cheering because this really is one tasty cotton candy treat! Now, I know a lot of you have Fall fever (I’m over here like ‘Summer forever’) and popcorn has always felt like a Fall treat to me. SO, we added cotton candy to popcorn to ease my Summer blues and get you ready for Fall, and the results couldn’t be more delicious! Plus, it’s PINK popcorn, so what’s not to love?! Anddd I got to use my new cotton candy cart for the first time, which I have been dying to try out!
This is super simple to make and there are only a few ingredients, so you’re probably not going to ever want to eat plain, old popcorn again! Make sure to get extra cotton candy too, to hold you over until the popcorn is ready. Get the recipe for cotton candy popcorn below!
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1 cup white chocolate (use pink candy melts to get your popcorn to a brighter pink color)
5 cups of cotton candy (I made my own and used 5 sticks or you can use a tub of the store-bought kind)
2 tablespoons of oil if you are popping your popcorn on the stove
Extra cotton candy to top it off
1. To pop your popcorn kernels on the stove, add the oil to a cold pan and then add in the kernels. Put the pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Move the pan back and forth to get the heat to distribute evenly. The kernels will start popping. Don’t remove from heat until the popping sounds slow down and stop. Remove and transfer to a bowl.
2. Melt the chocolate on a double boiler or in the microwave. Once the chocolate has melted, add in the cotton candy. I kept my chocolate on the double boiler when I added the cotton candy so that the cotton candy would melt faster.
3. Once all of the cotton candy is mixed in, combine the chocolate mixture to your popcorn until all pieces of popcorn are coated.
4. Lay the popcorn out on a sheet of wax paper to dry. Enjoy!
I’ve been munching on this all day. To be honest, I didn’t know if this was going to actually taste good, but it almost tastes like kettle corn and I am definitely a sucker for kettle corn! This is one popcorn you shouldn’t leave unattended in your house because it WILL disappear. Ha! Have fun making (and eating) this one!
