Easy To Make And Unique St. Patrick’s Day Popcorn Treat

I absolutely love how this St. Patrick’s Day themed treat turned out. While I need to be honest with you… my intent was to create a candied popcorn that you could just eat right out of the bowl. Only sometimes our creations don’t turn out exactly as planned!

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Popcorn Ice Cream Cones

Using frosting and food coloring for this popcorn recipe didn’t turn out like I had planned. Not at all like the white chocolate crunch bark that I made with popcorn. Chocolate will harden again after melting. Frosting tends to stay soft or turn sticky. It’s much better eaten with a spoon.

But eating popcorn with a spoon? That’s just silly. So I grabbed some cake ice cream cones out of the pantry and the rest is history for this green popcorn recipe!
