Monster Mash Popcorn Mix

Monster Mash Popcorn Mix from @KatrinasKitchen

I have an enthusiastic Four Year Old Foodie. Since he is always putting up with my boring measuring and stirring I thought it would be fun to get a little crazy in the kitchen. So we popped a bunch of popcorn using the homemade microwave method, drizzled it with chocolate, and threw in bunches of candy corn, Reese’s Puffs cereal, and these funky eyeball candies.

I usually save my chocolate popcorn for Christmastime when we have an excess of chocolate leftover from dipping buckeyes. But how could I say no to my little guy when he first saw these candy eyeballs? I waited for my 40% off coupon and nabbed a pack as soon as I could.

Our family enjoyed munching on this Monster Mash. However the longer that I stared at these photos the more I started to see chickens. Do you see chickens? Have I mentioned that I’m weird? Anyway,  Monster Mash Popcorn Mix or Funky Chicken Popcorn Mix- you decide. I’m going back for seconds.
