Honey Butter Popcorn

January 9, 2013

In our family it’s no secret that I love popcorn. Plain popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. Ever. ;)

But there are many different variations of popcorn you can make: kettle corn, savory herb popcorn, caramel corn, popcorn with dark chocolate M&M’s, and….honey butter popcorn! This is a “lightened up”, healthier version of caramel corn. It’s lightly sweetened, and it has a wonderful flavor. Be sure to give it a try on your next family movie night. We love it, and I hope you do too!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet and set aside. Pop about 2/3 cup popcorn. This will give you about 12 cups.

In a small bowl, mix together:

4 Tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup honey

Add to the popcorn and stir well. Bake in oven for about 7 minutes, until golden and crispy. Spread on waxed paper and sprinkle with salt, if desired. Let cool, and enjoy! :)

      I’m sorry, Kaitlyn, milk chocolate just doesn’t compare to dark chocolate, in my case! :) I mean, milk chocolate is okay, but if I had to pick between the two, it’d certainly be dark!

      How fun, Kaitlyn! I hope you like this recipe! Hmm…as for dark vs. milk chocolate, it looks like you’re outnumbered here. :) But there are plenty of people who prefer milk chocolate. You’re not alone, I guarantee it :)

    I like popcorn with honey and ginger on top.
    It is great for allergies and colds.
    we also like putting butter that has taco seasoning or chilli powder or Cayenne pepper on it.
    They all are really good.

      Yum, Hannah! Putting chilli powder on popcorn sounds amazing…I’ll have to try that sometime. :)
