What You Will Need to Make the Big Family Kool-Aid Popcorn
When making the Big Family Kool-Aid Popcorn, there are a few ingredients you should have, such as:
- Popped Popcorn. You can pop the popcorn ahead of time the old-fashioned way or in the microwave.
- Light Corn Syrup. Adding corn syrup to the popcorn is the best way to get the Kool-Aid packet to stick to it.
- Kool-Aid Unsweetened Drink Mix. Pick your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid to use on the popcorn.
- Butter. The butter melts over and adds more flavor to the popcorn, giving it the perfect taste.
Additional ingredients needed to prepare the popcorn include salt, sugar, and baking soda. If you want to add more color to the popcorn, you can use food coloring to make it look even better.
Ways to Store the Big Family Kool-Aid Popcorn
After you make the Big Family Kool-Aid Popcorn, you may have a lot of it and need an excellent way to store it. The best way to keep the popcorn is to put it in a sealed container. You can use an airtight food storage container or food storage bag with a zipper seal.
- If you use the food storage bag, remove any extra air after adding your popcorn to it.
- You do not need to store the popcorn in the fridge or freezer to keep it fresh.
- You can put it in the pantry or leave it on the kitchen table as long as you have it in a suitable container.
You can leave the popcorn the way that it is or create popcorn balls with it. If you create popcorn balls, you can wrap each one in plastic wrap before putting it in the food storage container, making it easier for your family to grab and go when they want some sweet popcorn to eat.
How to Make Different Variations of the Big Family Kool-Aid Popcorn
You can make several variations of this sweet treat by using different Kool-Aid packets. Grape, cherry, and orange are just a few popular flavors, but you can choose any Kool-Aid flavor that you and your loved ones like most.
You might want to separate the popcorn into bowls and use different Kool-Aid packets for each bowl. Adding ingredients to your popcorn is also optional. You might want to toss in some chopped peanuts, mini M&Ms, or other types of candies to add to the flavor of this treat.
