Ghostbusters Green Slimed Popcorn
When I was a youngster, I loved/hated Ghostbusters. We rented it on VHS. (Bear In Mind those?) It was such an enjoyable flick, however it completely scared me. I was just about 4 or 5 at the time and I had a vibrant creativity. It was a long period of time before I can walk down a deserted library aisle without believing I would find a ghost at the following turn. As well as do not get me started on those frightening gargoyles! Totally terrifying! Like many Ghostbusters fans, my favorite ghost was Slimer. When he passed through solid walls or anything actually, he left a route of intense green slime and he was always starving and also looking for something to eat. Sort of funny when you’re a little kid. When my kids as well as I enjoyed Ghostbusters over the weekend, there were fits of giggles when they saw Slimer.
Today I’m sharing a fun, easy recipe for Ghostbusters Eco-friendly Slimed Popcorn. It’s eco-friendly as well as sticks to your fingers– much like sludge! My youngsters loved this Slimer-inspired ooey-gooey snacks treat. We’re planning on creating our household Halloween celebration. I think it will be a big hit!
