KOOL-AID OR JELLO POPCORN

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations

Well one of my favorite snacks is POPCORN. So I wanted to one of my favorite recipes. Kool-Aide popcorn. You can literally make any flavor that Kool-Aid comes in!! This is a perfect thing for parties since you can match the color of the popcorn to your event!

I am addicted to this stuff and you will be too! Also you can add white chocolate to give it a nice creamy flavor!!! Enjoy!



KOOL-AID POPCORN

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 cup Light Corn Syrup
  • ⅔ cups Butter Or Margarine
  • 6 quarts Plain Popped Popcorn
  • 2 packages Kool-Aid (Any Flavor You Want)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda

Preparation


Preheat oven to 225 F.

Boil sugar, syrup and butter/margarine together for 3 minutes.

On a large shallow ungreased baking dish, spread out popped popcorn.
In a separate bowl, combine the Kool-Aid with the baking soda.
Remove sugar syrup from the stove and carefully stir in the Kool-Aid mixture. (Note: This will make the sugar mixture puff up. Be careful to not get burned.)
Now take sugar mixture and pour it over the popped popcorn. Carefully mix all till combined.
Place it in the oven and stir every 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 more times.
Take popcorn out of the oven and when it starts to cool, break it apart into pieces.
Enjoy!

That is it! ENJOY! I will post another take on this with Jello. This is perfect to make popcorn balls!

JELLO POPCORN

Ingredients

8 cups popped popcorn
1/4 C butter (that’s half a stick)
3 T light corn syrup (honey is a good substitute)
1/2 C sugar
1 3.5oz box jello, any flavor (not the sugar free kind)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a jelly roll pan with foil or parchment. If using foil, spray lightly with non-stick spray and set aside. Place popcorn in an extra large mixing bowl.
Place butter and syrup in a sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Add sugar and Jello and stir to combine.
Increase heat and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so it just simmers. Continue simmering for 5 minutes.
After the sugar mixture simmers for 5 minutes, immediately pour over popcorn in bowl. Be careful, it’s super hot!! Mix right away and keep stirring so everything gets well coated. Spread mixture onto prepared pan and spread out evenly.
Pop in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and let cool to room temp. Then break into pieces and enjoy! You can certainly eat this un-baked as well and it’s just soft and gooey, but definitely bake it if you’re going to pack it up for giving, or serve it as party food so it will be light and crunchy.
I am addicted to this stuff and you will be too! Also you can add white chocolate to give it a nice creamy flavor!!! Enjoy!

MONSTER INC TAKE OUT BOX

Everyone can here with Ken's Kreations

Recently I was asked to partake in a take out box challenge by the Cricut Explorers Group. We were given a takeout box file and asked to decorate it with something that inspired us. One of my favorite movies of all times is Monsters Inc. So it only seems natural to create a takeout box inspired by the two main characters. Using my Cricut ExploreBest Of PixarCricut Design Space Basic Shapes and the 3D Box, I was able to match these iconic characters.


For this project I've given you both of the Cricut Design Space links where I designed Sulley and Mike. Both of these file URLs can be found in my Patreon Group on Facebook. If you are not a Patron, take a look at This Video to see how for a dollar you get access to all of my files. In order for me to share that link I had to replace the 3D Box with a takeout box found in the Cricut Library. So this gives you the option to either use the 3-D takeout box found in this project or you can replace it with the 3D Box SVG file.

1) Open the Files up in Cricut Design Space.
2) These have already been sized for you, hit go in Cricut Design Space.
3) Choose the paper you want to work with. I have fallen in love with the Craft Smith Cardstock that you can find at Michael's. I given you the links down below in the shopping list, however you can find it much cheaper on sale at Michael's usually 70% off.
4) For this project you will need this Scoring Tool. Insert the Scoring Tool into clamp A, and then  follow Cricut Design Space instructions.
5) Sometimes your Cardstock might be too thick to get a perfect score on the Cricut Explore. If this is the case use a Scoring Board to make your score lines more defined.
6) Construct your  3D Box.  Click Here for a video that gives you a detailed walk-through on how to assemble the 3D Box.
7) now let's decorate our boxes!
8) For the horns I used Black Ink with the Round Blending Tool
9) Raise the horns up using 3-D Foam Squares at the top of the 3D Box.
10) For the Monsters eyes I I used the Spectrum Noir Glitter Markers.
11) Run the eyes and all remaining pieces through your Xyron Creative Station.
12) Once you have all of your pieces secured to your 3D Box, use Twinkling H2O's on Sulley's fur patches.

I just love how these boxes turned out. Make sure to join the Cricut Explorers Group so you can partake in this month Challenge. CLICK HERE to join the group.

If you would like the Cricut Design Space Files for these take out boxes, make sure to join my Patreon Group. For just a dollar you'll get access to a ton of different Cricut Design Space files and SVG files.
