Sticky Wings ~ Karmi Kornpop

It's all about Karmi Kornpop!


This lil cutie  is a perfect   addition to  my   Sticky  Wings Collection... after all  anyone  who  has  made   caramel corn  balls   knows what  a  sticky   project that  is.  Delicious  though   but  extremely  sticky.

Today  I am  showcasing  the  wonderful  design team member's   inspirations featuring  Karmi.

First is  Julie's. A   very   dainty and  elegant  card.
 

and  next  is  Roberta's, who  is  our  guest  designer's inspiration.... created in a  very   regal  color  scheme.
 

Once  again, its   quite interesting to   see the  two totally  different  interpretations of the  same digi stamp.  Both  are  so beautiful. 

Now  Karmi  would like to  share with you  one of  her   favorite  Kornball  recipes.... perfect  for your  holiday parties. 

Christmas  Cornballs

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • Green and red food coloring
  • 12 cups popped popcorn

Preparation:

1. Prepare a cookie sheet by covering it with aluminum foil and spraying it with nonstick cooking spray. Place the popcorn in a large heatproof bowl sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine the sugar, water, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and stir to dissolve sugar. Insert a candy thermometer.
3. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches 240 degrees.
4. Remove from heat and stir in the extract and food coloring of your choice.
5. Pour the syrup over the popcorn and stir to thoroughly coat all popcorn.
6. Allow the popcorn to sit and cool for about 5 minutes. You want the popcorn to be cool enough to handle, but still warm enough to easily shape. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray, and working carefully, scoop a handful of popcorn and press into a ball. Press firmly so that the popcorn ball holds its shape.
7. Place the popcorn balls on the prepared baking sheet to cool and set completely.
Tip: I recommend making only one color of popcorn ball at a time. If you try to divide the syrup into two bowls to color it after heating it, the syrup cools quickly and will mostly likely be unworkable by the time you’re ready to pour and mold the second color. Instead, make two half batches of sugar syrup and do one color at a time, or double the amount of popcorn and make two regular batches of sugar syrup.
