Popcorn Easter Eggs

This year's classroom Easter treats are popcorn eggs :-)

Have you noticed a few more popcorn related things 'popping' up on the Loving Lunches social media pages? I've been lucky enough to receive a Kambrook Flutter Butter Popcorn Maker, and can I tell you I'm loving it! There is a full review in the works as well as a giveaway so stay tuned.

Anyway, back to the treaties! I used this recipe as a guide.

After melting some butter & marshmallows in a large pan, I added some popped corn, gave it a mix & loaded it into some oiled egg moulds from the cheap shops.

 One batch yielded 8 super large eggs & 2 regular sized eggs.

After allowing to cool, the moulds are removed & voila!

You can see the pink tinge to these ones from the coloured marshmallows. . . .

So I made another batch. . .

I think using just the white marshmallows looks much nicer.

I also added more popcorn this time around.

Second batch yielded 8 regular sized eggs & 4 super large eggs

They did remain a little sticky but I didn't refrigerate them. I wrapped each in a little cling film before packaging up in little Easter gift bags for the kiddies.
