What you will need:

  • 3-4 large potatoes (quantity for 2 people)
  • oil to fry

World Cup snack preparation:

Cut potatoes into long pieces. Take a large pan and put it on medium to high heat. Fill half the pan with oil. Carefully place the chips in the frying pan with a metal sieve. Fry them for around 8 min until they get a beautiful gold colour. Take them out and leave in a tray with baking paper to cool. The paper will soak some of the excess oil. Season with salt per preference. So easy!

And if you are looking for some sweet World Cup snacks, let’s give a go at this homemade caramel popcorn balls recipe!

What you will need:

  • 2 bags of microwave popcorn
  • 3/4 cups/ 170 gr butter
  • 3/4 cups/ 250 gr corn syrup
  • 1 1/3 cup/ 230 g packed brown sugar

  • oil

First pop the popcorn. Then place it in a large bowl and leave. Take out a large saucepan and add the butter, syrup and brown sugar. Heat it on medium heat. The temperature of the mix needs to reach 240 °F /115 °C. This is important, because if it is cooler we won’t be able to make caramel. Once it is 240°F /115 °C, add the milk and vanilla and heat for 1 more min. Add the salt and stir. Pour the mix over popcorn and mix. Give it time to cool a bit. Place the popcorn in a baking tray. Lightly oil your hands. Start shaping the mixture into balls. When done, serve.

Return to oven. Wait until the chips are slightly brown and crisp. When done, take out, let cool and serve. Enjoy!
