Popcorn 5 Ways!

Five Popcorn Recipes with a Twist

Who doesn’t love Popcorn?!  And even if you don’t love popcorn, how can you not love what popcorn represents?  Every time I pull out our Redenbacher Popcorn maker, my kids jump for joy and watch in awe as the popping corn comes flowing out.  This is usually followed by a family movie afternoon or being lazy one way or the other.  I am also a huge fan of movie theater popcorn.  I know, “yuck and it’s so bad for you, blah blah”.  I don’t care.  I love the feeling of sitting in a theater and eating a whole bag by myself.  We don’t have a movie theater in the small mountain town we call home so this is a real luxury for me, especially because in my past life I marketed Walt Disney Films and spent more days in a theater than not.

Here are 5 ways to make popcorn that everyone will enjoy!

Five Popcorn Recipes with a Twist

Caramel Corn Love

1. Homemade Kettle Corn:

Kettle corn always sounds nice in theory but its always either too salty or too sweet or not enough of the other.  I had to make this recipe twice before I got the ratio to my liking and here’s what I did:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups popped popcorn
  • 3 Tablespoon’s Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon brown sugar

  4. Once combined, add a pinch of salt.

2. Carmel/Chocolatey Dessert:

This is a small twist on the usual caramel corn.  I never pop popcorn over the stovetop, which is really how you should be making caramel corn, so I did something slightly different which was just as delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Cups popped popcorn
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons caramel
  • 2 Tablespoons hot fudge

Caramel Fudge Popcorn

Directions:

  1. Melt butter on the stovetop.
  2. Add the fudge and caramel and stir until everything is evenly combined.
  3. Poor popcorn over a lined baking sheet.
  4. Using a plastic baggie, poor fudge mixture into bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners of the bag.
  5. Slowly squeeze the caramel/fudge mixture over popcorn.
  6. Add a pinch of salt.  Let Cool.

3. The Perfect Savory Mix:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups popped popcorn
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil

Directions:

  1. Melt butter on the stovetop or in the microwave.
  2. Add melted butter, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil into the spray bottle.
  3. Gently tossing the popcorn, spray as much or as little butter mixture as you like.

4. Cheesy Delight:

*Copy everything listed above in the “Perfect Buttery/Salt Mix”, omit sesame seed oil, and sprinkle some Parmesan Cheese over the top of the Popcorn bowl.  This is my personal favorite!

OK, now this one might seem bizarre and I laughed at it until I tried it myself.  Turns out high-end spas know what they are talking about!  This is great for a party appetizer because it’s easy but also looks pretty!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  2. Add melted butter, lavender, and salt into one mixture.
  3. Gently tossing the popcorn, pour mixture over the top of the bowl.
  4. Add gold decor powder to the mixture directly before serving.
