The first thing I wanted to write when I thought of this was La La La… POP! That sounds so bad doesn’t it? No one would want those little blue guys and gals to go pop now would they. But I can promise you no Smurfs have to go pop when making this Smurfs popcorn. It’s delightfully tasty!
Secondly, what I love about popcorn is that it’s the universal snack. Great to mix just about anything in. You can change up the toppings to reflect colors you would like to use when it comes to your parties or gatherings. Anything from a birthday party, bridal shower, wedding, and even engagement parties. It’s really easy to make and usually stays well that whole day and even overnight.
With this Smurfs Popcorn I like the idea of placing little smurf’s everywhere around it. White marshmallows remind me of their little hats. The blue candy sauce is the color of their cute blue bodies. Tip: don’t mix the marshmallows in until the end so that they stay pretty white. That blue candy sauce is a sticky substance that will glue to just about anything before it sets.
Additionally, you can serve these up in little red pails full of blue popcorn. The kids would love it. Don’t forget to stop by and print out our Smurfs party printables to match. I mean we all know how vintage is in and how vintage are the smurfs!
