Today we have a great guest post from Britney! She is sharing a recipe for Mother Goose Popcorn, and I love how playful it looks!
Hi all! I’m Britney from The Princess & Her Cowboys and I’m excited to share this fun family treat with you today!
I wish I had some great story as to why we call this Mother Goose popcorn but I don’t. That’s just what we’ve always called it!
To start, combine 2 cubes of butter, 3/4 c sugar and 1/2 c Karo syrup (the clear kind). You’re going to cook it until it reaches a soft ball, or 240 degrees on your candy thermometer.
I need to get myself a candy thermometer so I had to look up ways to tell if it had made it to a soft ball. Get yourself some really cold water and spoon a little bit in. If you can mold it, then it’s done.
Pour over a large batch of popped popcorn, stir it up and there you go.
My favorite part of this is that we always got to choose the color of it, adding just a few drops of food coloring. Because it’s fall/almost Halloween, I went with the orange.
