Servings: 4 people
Author: Grace Hall
  • 1/3 cup (75g) popcorn kernels
  • handful mini marshmallows
  • handful dried coconut flakes
  • handful white chocolate buttons
  • 4 strawberry laces (sweets)
  • 4 clear or white plastic cups
  • black and orange marker pens
  1. Place the popcorn kernels in a saucepan, cover with a lid and heat on a medium heat until the kernels begin to pop. Keep the pan on the stove until the pops have slowed down, shaking it occasionally to avoid burning.
  2. Tip the popcorn into a large bowl and leave to cool.
  3. Once the popcorn is cool, add the mini marshmallows, coconut flakes and white chocolate buttons, then mix together with your hands to create the snack mix.
  4. Take your cups and draw a snowman design on them with the sharpies. 

  5. Tie a strawberry lace around each cup for a scarf, trimming the ends to the right length once in place.

  6. Fill the cups with the snack mix and serve!

Recipe Notes

Notes: I've added some tasty treats to my snack mix, but feel free to skip the sweets or just use just plain popcorn if you'd like to keep them extra healthy.  You could also turn these into fun party favours, just pop each cup into a cellophane bag and tie at the top with ribbon to keep them fresh.
