POP Corn Halloween Style

EDT’s Countdown to Halloween!
This week’s installment of EDT's Countdown to Halloween delves into two of my favorite treats combined into a loving symphony of snacky goodness. That is the perfect creation of pop corn and candy corn together at last. Please enjoy…

• 1/4 cup vegetable oil
• 1/4 cup white sugar ( white sugar makes it taste little kettle corn or popcorn balls, brown sugar makes it taste like Carmel corn you choose)
• 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
• ½ cup of candy corn ( or any other candy you prefer i.e. … gummy worms etc)
Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place three kernels of corn in the pot. Once all three kernels have popped, your oil is hot enough for the rest of the corn. Stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping has stopped.Lift lid and immediately sprinkle with salt. Recover give it one good shake to make sure all the popping has ceased. Pour into a large bowl, and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps. Then toss in your favorite treat. I love throwing in candy corn, but gummy worms, and even little broken up pieces of candy bars will work just fine.
