Biscoff Cookie Popcorn

I love this popcorn recipe because it's super easy to make and really creative.

It will definitely hit your sweet spot.

Ingredients:

About 8 cups prepared kettle corn

1 bag white chocolate chips

1 Tbsp oil

1/4 cup Biscoff

1 cup butter cookies (I used kettle corn flavored butter cookies from Trader Joe’s, but shortbread cookies would work, too!), crushed

Directions:

Line a flat work space with wax paper.

Meanwhile, in a microwaveable bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and the oil for 45 seconds.

Stir, then heat for an additional 15 seconds until melted &

smooth.

Stir in the Biscoff spread to combine.

Pour the popcorn &

crushed cookies into the bowl and coat thoroughly with the Biscoff mixture.2

Spread the coated popcorn onto the wax paper in an even layer and let sit and harden for about an hour.

Break popcorn into pieces and store airtight at room temp for up to 5 days.

2. Bacon Caramel Popcorn

Bacon Caramel Popcorn

If you are a bacon lover, this is the recipe for you.

It seems bacon is finding its way into just about everything these days, so why not popcorn?

Ingredients:

1/2 cup popcorn kernels

2 tbsp olive oil

7 pieces bacon, cooked crispy and chopped (Hell, you could add more.2

I added 1 extra ;D)

1/2 cup peanuts (optional)

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (+ 1 tbsp)

1 Ceylon black tea bag

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cup water

2 tbsp maple syrup

Directions:

Bring cream and tea bag just to boil over medium heat.

Remove from heat and let steep for 15 minutes, occasionally pressing on tea bag with back of spoon to release flavor.

Discard tea bag.

(The extra tbsp of cream should have made up for the cream that will have been soaked up by the tea leaves.)

Preheat oven to 150Β°C.

Combine popcorn and oil in covered heavy large pot.

Make sure that all the popcorn kernels are evenly coated in oil.

Heat over medium-high heat until kernels begin to pop.

Lift pot just barely off of element and shake until popping stops.

Pour popcorn onto a large baking sheet..

Sprinkle salt and cayenne over popcorn and toss to coat.

Sprinkle bacon (and peanuts) on top of popcorn.

Combine sugar, water and maple syrup in large saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves.

Increase heat to high, boil without stirring until syrup turns deep amber, about 13 minutes.

Remove from heat and immediately add cream (mixture will bubble up).

Stir until blended.

Immediately drizzle caramel over popcorn mixture;

toss to coat with wooden spoons.

Spread caramel popcorn on a baking paper lined tray in an even layer.2

Place tray in oven and bake until caramel is shiny and coats popcorn, tossing mixture occasionally, for about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.

Using wooden spoons toss popcorn and breakup any large chunks.

Let cool another 5 minutes and then toss again.

Continue this until caramel popcorn is completely cool.

Store in airtight container (in refrigerator).

Best eaten within 2-3 days.
