Fancy Popcorn

October 01, 2014
I love classics like popcorn, but I also love to put a twist on traditional treats! Popcorn is a great base for all kinds of flavors, plus it’s the perfect treat to bring to a party, or just to have at home as a snack. During the holidays I like to gather my best girlfriends around the TV with a giant bowl of popcorn to watch sappy holiday movies. This year I plan to surprise my ladies with these 3 delicious fancy popcorn recipes.

To start, pop up a giant batch of popcorn. You can use one of those old fashioned poppers or the microwavable kind. You can even use pre-made popcorn!

Let’s start with my favorite, shall we? This fancy popcorn is a really delicious combination of savory and sweet. It’s one of those recipes that you make once and fall in love with...then make over and over again. It’s definitely worth the sticky fingers!

Glitter is one of my favorite things ever, so you can imagine my excitement over finding edible glitter. If you can’t find it in your local craft store, I recommend taking a peek online—there are tons of options. Simply sprinkle on the edible glitter and nonpareils for a bright and sparkly touch, perfect for bringing to your next holiday party. Full recipe.
