The Best Popcorn Recipe…EVER!
Forget popping those weird little dried out bits of corn in some radioactive oven… pop that stuff on a stove like the universe intended!
Alright, so for the best pop corn ever, grab yourself corn kernels- we can’t tell you how much cos we don’t know how many peeps you poppin’ for!
The trick to avoid burnt popcorn bits is to heat the oil with four corn kernels in there, leave the lid off for this part. When they’ve all popped, remove the pot from heat and count to 30 seconds. As in 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi…. None of this quick 1,2,3 shizz. Whack in the rest of your kernels and pop back over the heat, now you can pop the lid on otherwise you’ll be finding popcorn till Christmas! Give the pot a little shake around to get all those kernels oiled up like the Hasselhoff. Listen for the first ‘POP’ then give them another jiggle round. (Watch out- hot oil is not your friend!) Let them all pop, you know when they’re ready when the time between ‘POP’S’ is longer than a couple of seconds. Quickly remove the pot from the heat.
Melt some butter, this depends on how much corn you’ve popped but the general rule is a table spoon per cup of kernels (pre-popped). Pour the melted butter over the popcorn, then sprinkle with salt and a little bit of white sugar to taste. More salt than sugar is usually the way to go, but it’s really up to you.
BANG! POP! BEST.POPCORN.EVER!
Old School Lemonade Recipe
Say ‘sayonara’ to lemonade that’s full of fizz and a whole lotta numbers and say ‘what the heck is up’ to old fashioned lemonade!
Get yourself six cups of water, that stuff is easy and free! You’ll also need two cups of lemon juice; don’t be slack, squeeze them babies! You could find yourself a sugar cube but if you like to keep it real, a teaspoon should do the trick.
Mix it all together in some fancy-ass jug and whack it in the fridge for a few hours. Serve it icy and make it pretty in rad glasses with lemon slices. Never underestimate garnish!
It’s thigh-slapping, eye watering amazeball-ness!
Get. It. Into. You.
The Ultimate Favour Bag Formula!
It can be a little hard to think of what to pop in your favour bags, obviously candy but it’s also nice to add a few little extra non-edible items so the guests have something to remember the party with.
1 packaged chocolate treat + 3 packaged hard candies + 4 loose jelly candies + 1 lollipop (because who doesn’t love a lollipop?!) + 1 popper or party whistle + non-edible keepsake item like a pen, notebook or figurine + 1 cute as pie favour bag = some kick-butt bags!
