Explosive Edibles: Drive-in Movie Popcorn

Explosive Edibles: Drive-in Movie Popcorn

So…the original plan was to make a bright and colorful red, white and bleu salad to represent the USA on my Eat the World Showcase Tour. Instead, I decided to make this cookie candy popcorn sweet thing. I mean, who needs salads? Side note: Grape […]
