There’s no better way to bond than getting the family together to prepare festive Christmas food crafts. This holiday season, spend some quality time with your kids or grandchildren while whipping up a batch of Festive Popcorn Trees. Combining our decadent gourmet popcorn and a little imagination, your little loved ones are going to adore getting their hands a little messy while creating their own culinary masterpieces with these popcorn crafts.
Make the popcorn mixture
Start by placing a bag of our sweet and salty Peanut Brittle Popcorn with Chocolate Drizzle into a large bowl.
Then, in a medium saucepan, combine miniature marshmallows and butter, cooking over medium-low heat. Continue to stir the mixture until it’s well combined and silky smooth. After removing the marshmallow sauce from the heat, stir in a dash of vanilla extract to add a nice flavor and aroma. Pour the marshmallow sauce over the popcorn, mixing to coat.
Form and decorate your trees
Prepare a working surface by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, coat your hands in cooking spray and let the fun begin! Grab a handful of the gourmet popcorn mixture and form the popcorn into a tree-shaped cone, keeping the base nice and flat.
Once the tree is formed, you can start decorating your holiday food crafts. Using colored baking sugar, let the kids add some color, and break out the icing and candy to add the finishing touches. Pipe bright frosting around the trees to form garlands, add white tips for snow and place the candy around the tree like ornaments.
When everyone is finished with their masterpieces, place the completed popcorn trees on sugar cookies. Now, you’re ready to dig in!
These easy popcorn trees are a great way to get kids excited about cooking, while bringing their imaginations to life. By using our delicious Hickory Farms Peanut Brittle Popcorn with Chocolate Drizzle, you can transform this fun project into a texturally rich, delicious dessert the whole family is sure to love!
