Unveiling the Popcorn Monsters
Step 1: Prepare Your Muffin Cups
Start by getting your spooky squad ready. Prepare 12 We Might Be Tiny Muffin Cups and set them aside. These will be the homes for your cute little Popcorn Monsters.
Step 2: Mix Up the Monster Mash
In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the popcorn. That includes the rice malt syrup, almond butter, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon. Give it a good stir to create a smooth and flavourful concoction.
Now, it's time to add the star of the show – the popped popcorn! Stir again until the popcorn is evenly coated with the sweet and sticky mixture. This is where the magic happens as your Popcorn Monsters start to take shape.
Step 3: Form Your Monster Minions
Grab a spoon and start spooning the mixture into your prepared muffin cups. Press it down gently to create your Popcorn Monsters' heads and bodies. Feel free to get creative with the shapes – after all, monsters come in all sorts of delightful deformities!
Step 4: Chill Out in the Fridge
Once your monstrous creations are ready, it's time to give them a little rest. Place the muffin cups in the fridge for at least 1 hour to allow your Popcorn Monsters to chill and set. This helps them hold their monstrous form.
Step 5: Unleash the Popcorn Monsters
After their chilling time, your Popcorn Monsters are ready to make their grand appearance. Carefully remove them from the muffin cups, and voilà – you've got a dozen delightfully monstrous treats that are perfect for Halloween! Or better yet, serve them in the muffin cups for an extra pop of colour.
