LOOKING for: Fun Popcorn Recipes

lacheleDecember 5, 2008

Hi, So my father's birthday is on the 13th and he is very hard to shop for. The only thing I could figure he wanted was a couple of large handled buckets that he uses for the horses. So I thought I could get him some of those and make it more fun by filling them with a bunch of bags of fun different popcorn. Just wondering if anyone has a favorite sweet, or spicy, or different popcorn recipe I could try. Thanks a bunch!

here's a few:
Diane's Home Cookin Chapter: Snacks

Bacon Cheese Popcorn
4 quarts Popped popcorn
1/3 cup Margarine; melted
1/2 teaspoon Seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon Hickory-smoked salt
1/2 cup American cheese; grated
1/3 cup Bacon bits
. Pour freshly popped corn in large bowl. Combine margarine with
hickory-smoked salt. Pour over popcorn; toss well to coat. Sprinkle
with cheese and bacon bits. Toss again


Cheese And Garlic Popcorn Spice
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese; Graded
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Tarragon
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Parsley flakes
. Mix ingredients together and store in tightly sealed container or
shaker, Mix spice with 4 tabspoons of melted butter and pour over
freshly popped popcorn, stir to coat.
* I use bruised mixed Italian herbs instead of the tarragon

Heavenly Hash Popcorn
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, toasted
6 cups popcorn, popped
4 cups miniature marshmallows
. In a heavy saucepan, put the butter, chocolate and pecans. Cook over a
moderate heat until melted, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
Pour over the popped corn and marshmallows. Stir well. Spread on a
buttered cookie sheet and refrigerate to cool.

For variations, you may wish to substitute butterscocth morsels or use
bitter chocolate. White chocolate pieces in place of chips make a
pretty white candy which can be colored and molded into shaped cake
pans. Yogurt candy coating can also be used for a more piquant flavor

softened butter
1-1/4 cups sliced almonds
4 quarts popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cups honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

bowl toss together the almonds and the popped popcorn. In a saucepan
with high sides, melt the butter. Add honey and salt. Bring to a boil,
stirring con- stantly and allow to boil for five minutes. Remove from
heat and stir in soda and vanilla. Pour over popped popcorn and stir to
coat. Place on large cookie sheet and bake in 300 degrees oven for 30
minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven, loosen from pan
and cool. (Makes 4 quarts.)


Golden Popcorn Patties
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Syrup; light
1 cup Water; hot

Try this: Take a bag of Herr's Light Popcorn and a 16oz bag of almond bark (white chocolate coatings). Put popcorn in a large bowl, melt chocolate and coat popcorn. Spread out on wax paper or cookie sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Refrigerate to harden then just break it apart and bag it. I'm not big on white chocolate but I've been making & selling this for months now.
