HONEY POPCORN CLOUDS WITH RAINDROP & STAR MERINGUES
Recipe by @jacobs_food_diaries
Honey Popcorn Clouds
2 tbsps. honey
2 tbsps. white sugar
1 tbsp. coconut or vegetable oil
½ cup corn kernels
Raindrop & Star Meringues
3pcs Egg Whites
2.5g Cream of tartar
180g Sugar, white
Blue Organic Food Color (for raindrop)
Yellow Organic Food Color (for star)
Equipment required: Cupcake tin/tray, Scissors, Baking paper
In a small pot, melt a tablespoon of oil.
Add the corn kernels, put the lid on and allow to pop.
In another pot, stir in sugar and honey.
Take the sugar and honey mixture off the heat once it begins to bubble.
In a large bowl, combine the honey mixture with the popcorn.
Spread the popcorn mixture onto a baking sheet in the shape of a big cloud and put it in a preheated oven for 5 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
Cool the popcorn clouds in the fridge for half an hour before serving.
Raindrop & Star Meringues
Preheat oven to 120 degrees Celsius. Cut out small pieces of baking paper to line the cupcake tins/tray holes with.
Briskly whisk the 3 egg whites until you are able to form small peaks.
Gradually whisk in the sugar and cream of tartar.
Separate the mixture into two, and whisk in blue food coloring in one (for the raindrops), and yellow in the other (for the stars).
Make a piping cone from your baking/parchment paper, then spread the mixture onto the cupcake tins/trays, making raindrop and star shapes.
Bake for around 1 and a half hours, and add them to your popcorn clouds when serving!
• Highlighter pen
• White glue
• Distilled water
• Borax solution - 4% (Borax is found in laundry booster, certain hand soaps and in some toothpastes. You can order borax online or find it at grocery stores).
• Black UV light
Pour some water into a bottle.
Extract the ink by putting a highlighter pen into the water.
Make the glue mixture:
a) In a bowl, mix 1 part glue and 1 part distilled water. Set aside.
b) In another bowl, make the borax solution by mixing 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon borax. Add some coloured water from STEP 2.
c) In a container, gently mix the coloured borax solution and the glue mixture while simultaneously stirring it. Curdles will soon form.
Transfer curdles to another container as you drain excess water and knead into a ball.
Turn off the lights and expose the ball while watching it glow in your hand! You can make different glowing shapes and figures!
