One more week until STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS hits theaters! I recently got together with a few of my blogging pals to plan a kid-friendly Star Wars movie night party! I styled a concession cart (a thrift shop find) for the party, complete with a popcorn bar. What’s a movie night without popcorn? In true Star Wars fashion, we had Light Side popcorn, Dark Side popcorn and (my favorite) Chewie caramel corn! The entire party turned out so cute (Star Wars is allowed to be cute, right?) and I can’t wait to share all of the details with you tomorrow, but in the meantime I’ll leave you with my Chewie Caramel Corn recipe. I’ll also give you instructions on how to make the Light Side and Dark Side popcorn. Keep scrolling!
4 cups popcorn
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Step 1: Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Lightly coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
Step 2: Mix brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a large saucepan. Continuously stir over medium heat until brought to a boil.
Step 3: Allow to sit and boil for 5 minutes.
Step 4: Mix in baking soda until well combined.
Step 5: Place popcorn in roasting pan and place in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until warm.
Step 6: Pour caramel mixture over popcorn. Lightly toss until popcorn is well coated.
Step 7: Bake for 30-40 minutes, while stirring every 10 minutes.
Step 8: Allow to cool and break apart.
To make the blue “Light Side” and red “Dark Side” popcorn, you’ll need (affiliate) blue and red food dust. Place popcorn in a freezer bag with the powder and shake until the popcorn is fully colored. So easy and a fun party detail!
