An easy and healthy treat. These popcorn ghosts are made quickly, look nice and because they cost € 0.10 per person, they are also very budget-friendly.
A new monthly recurring item is here: birthday party treats. I have got three (kids :-)) and each year it is a challenge to make something especially for my birthday boy. I have a few criteria: homemade, not too expensive and tasty. Of course it is a treat. Today I share with you these really nice popcorn ghosts which are ideal if you have a toddler or preschooler with a birthday party. And certainly not too expensive. I make the popcorn myself (really simple) and for a total of 30 children the treats costed me 3.75 Euro (which is slightly more than 10 cents per person). You can also cheer up the ghosts with a nice card with text if you want!
- Stay around while popping the popcorn. Because immediately when the pop noise decreases, you have to intervene and turn off the fire. Otherwise he will stick and, I'm experience expert, that is a disaster to clean.
- You can easily make this a day in advance. Make sure you pack the popcorn in the foil or it will get tough.
- You can also use a pinch of salt instead of confectioners sugar.
- Instead of the sticky eyes, grab a black marker and draw eyes.
- You can also take a white napkin and turn it into ghosts instead of plastic wrapping foil
With the budget friendly version you will certainly stay under € 0.10 per person.
- These ghosts with popcorn can be made a day in advance and stored at room temperature.
- banana, strawberry and pancake on a skewer
- easy apple turnovers
- Halloween lollipops
- DIY Sinterklaas treat
It's a good taste!
