Okay, so there probably wasn’t popcorn at the original Thanksgiving feast but there most definitely was corn itself. It’s kind of the whole reason why we even have Thanksgiving to begin with (you know since the gathering was a celebration of the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest and all). And since popcorn is the greatest thing EVER, we’ve created a popcorn recipe that’s perfect to pop some fun into your Thanksgiving celebration this year.
½ cup of popcorn kernels
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of butter
½ cup of pure maple syrup
½ teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon of ground ginger
½ cup of dried cranberries
½ cup of chopped walnuts, pecans, and/or almonds
3 tablespoons of light brown sugar
Check out Pam Noone’s amazing photos! For her daughter’s baby shower, Pam created a popcorn bar that displayed a bounty of our delicious flavors, offering something fun and delicious for guests to snack on. (Looks pretty fabulous, huh?)
Getting in the spirit of spooky Halloween? We are too! That’s what led us to create this delicious blend of crunchy caramel popcorn and sea salt milk chocolate bugs. So bust out your cauldrons and ready your wands to create this otherworldly snack.
From the Potion Cupboard:
12-15 cups of popped popcorn
1 tsp of vanilla
1 1/3 cups of sugar
½ cup light Karo corn syrup
1 cup of butter
2 ounces of light cocoa confectionary coating
Hey, hey, hey popcorn people! Halloween is just around the corner, so you’re probably busting out the fake spiders, readying the netted cobwebs, and practicing your monster mash. But while you’re getting amped up for a spooky Halloween, don’t forget your all-time favorite snack: popcorn! It’s easy to make popcorn super creepy without a lot of work that other themed party snacks require. You’ve probably already heard of, seen, and/or made those clear gloves stuffed with popcorn, right? Yeah, old news. We can do better than that. Much better.
1. Werewolf Fur
Arroooo! (Oh yeah, that’s a werewolf cry.) This popcorn is sure to make them howl – in a good way. Take your delicious, crunchy popcorn and drizzle it with melted chocolate – either dark or milk, it doesn’t matter. Next, take a plethora of coconut shavings and toss it into the mixture and you’ve got a treat they’ll be over the moon about (well, maybe not over it, but barking at it, at any rate).
2. Vampire Bites
No matter their blood type, they won’t be able to reject this perfectly creepy popcorn. Take out your ordinary kettle corn and grab your oil. But instead of making it the usual way, you’re going to take some nice crimson cherry jell-O and add it into the cooking oil. To make it look slightly more realistic, you’ll want to make it darker by adding in a drop or two of red, green, and/or blue food coloring. After completing your perfect sanguine snack, don’t be afraid to drizzle on some chocolate too.
