One of the best things about being a mom is teaching Ayva about all of the things that I used to love when I was a kid. Old cartoons, Debbie Gibson, and Nickelodeon top that list. I recently introduced her to the beloved Nickelodeon show, “You Can’t Say That On Television” and she was cracking up as she watched people get soaked with water whenever they said the word, or slimed if they said, “I don’t know”. I remember how hard I used to laugh to see the bright green gooey stuff oozing all over one of the show’s hilarious stars, and dreamed of going on another Nickelodeon show, “Double Dare” for the chance to get slimed myself. Well, that never happened, but that doesn’t mean Ayva and I can’t have some slime inspired fun.
When I asked Ayva what she liked the most about the slime, her answer was the color. We decided to make a green slime inspired popcorn recipe in honor of the green goo that Nickelodeon is known for. We looked at some ideas for making edible slime, and my little picky eater was not having it! We experimented with a few different recipes, and finally came up with one that had the right texture for a very particular 5-year-old! Also? It’s perfect for watching the Kids’ Choice Awards on March 28th!
Green Slime Inspired Popcorn
-2 cups popped popcorn
-1 cup white chocolate chips
-1 tsp melted butter
-green food coloring
What To Do
Combine white chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave for 1.5 minutes or until thoroughly melted. You will need to stop and stir the chocolate every few seconds to prevent burning. After the chocolate has melted, add about 10 drops of green food coloring and stir until all of the chocolate is green. Let cool. Combine with popcorn and cover with sprinkles.
