Dead popcorn is an original way to add a little twist to your favorite snack. Colorful popcorn is also very popular on holidays, such as Christmas and Halloween, with many people using it for popcorn candies, popcorn balls or garlands. There are several ways to color popcorn, each one is easy and each one makes the popcorn edible.
Measure 1 1/2 cups of popcorn kernels. Pour the popcorn into the machine. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup oil to the popcorn. Put some drops of food coloring in the popcorn mix. Put the lid on the machine and reinsert it. Allow the popcorn maker to shake until the popcorn pops out and gets soiled with food coloring. This is the first method.
Fill the large bowl with popcorn. Place the bowl aside for a moment. Put the pan on the stove. Put some butter in the pan. The amount of butter depends on your personal taste preferences for buttered popcorn. Place the burner on low heat under the pan to melt the butter. Add the desired amount and color of the food color paste to the melted butter. Stir with a wooden spoon until the butter has melted and mixed with the food coloring. Pour the melted butter over the popcorn into the bowl. Mix popcorn gently. This is the second method.
Open a large zippered storage bag. Put the popcorn and let the popcorn shake. Add the desired amount of food coloring powder and a few drops of water. Pull the bag and tighten it until the popcorn is colored. If it is very dusty, add a few more drops of water and repeat stirring. Garlic food colors can be found in the shops for cake decoration. This is the third method.
