Santa’s Popcorn Gift Idea

Popcorn is such an easy snack to make for parties. I have made several different varieties in the past from caramel popcorn to my favorite go to popcorn recipe, white chocolate popcorn.  Every time I make it it can be adjusted for the specific holiday by changing up the M&Ms or sprinkle colors. Both adults and kids can be seen eating handfuls of this yummy popcorn  treat.   Here is a great popcorn gift idea that would be wonderful for neighbor gifts this year.

While I know that the flavor will be a hit I wanted to make a presentation that I could serve at parties or give as gifts. When I was creating the  teachers holiday survival baskets I also found these colored tins at the  Dollar store. Red and Green for Santa and elf baskets will be the perfect solution to serve up this festive snack.  Santa popcorn.

These popcorn containers can easily be made as you are waiting for the   Chocolate popcorn to set. I simply painted on belts and buckles. You can get the buckets  here.
