In-Season Recipe Swap: Popcorn

Popcorn!!

This week's in-season recipe theme is popcorn! :) I have several favorite popcorn recipes...

As a child, we used leftover popcorn to make popcorn cereal! It was fun to read everyone's comments on the idea of popcorn cereal... anything from "yum!" to "I can't imagine!" ;) I still maintain that it's actually pretty yummy, and my children love it too! :)

I thought I had put this recipe for Peanut Butter Popcorn on this site months ago, but apparently I never did, so I added it tonight! :)

Peanut Butter Popcorn is really sweet (adding more popcorn and some mixed nuts makes it less so) and has a nice honey and peanut flavor! It's also very easy to make and uses pantry ingredients, so it can be a last-minute dessert. :)

Here is a simple Parmesan Garlic Popcorn recipe... freshly popped corn tossed with butter, garlic, pepper, parmesan cheese, and dill (optional). Surprisingly cheesy, and a nice change of pace from plain buttered popcorn! :)

To participate in this week's In-Season Recipe Swap:

Post your on-theme recipe, including your own photo of the food. Link to this post, and then come over here and let us know where to find YOU! Just leave your link in a comment and I will manually add them to this post throughout the day. :) Next week's recipe theme (December 9, 2009) is oranges!

gooey caramel corn

The original recipe says to use 2 bags of microwave popped popcorn, but you could use about 12-14 cups of regular buttered/salted corn.

12-14 cups of popped popcorn, buttered and salted
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
10 large marshmallows

Heat butter and brown sugar together over medium heat until it bubbles. Remove from heat and add marshmallows and stir until they are melted. Pour over popcorn and toss until popcorn is coated. This stays soft and gooey and is very good!

Oh Dear...

This looks GREAT! We have everything here to whip up a batch. I think I will pour the sugar sauce over the nuts as well.

White Chocoate Popcorn Mix

I just received this recipe and haven't tried it yet, but I had to share.

White Chocolate Popcorn Mix (Cindy O'Dell)

14 Cups popcorn (3 bags microwave popcorn)
3 Cups Rice Krispies
1 pkg Almond Bark
3 Tbsp Peanut Butter
2 Cups Peanuts

Pop popcorn(use the lightly salted kind, not the heavy butter one). Shake down bagdown really well, making sure to get any unpopped kernals to the bottom of the bag. Pour popcorn in a very large bowl big enough to mix all ingredients...one handful at a time, being very careful to keep unpopped kernals out! Add Rice Krispies and peanuts and mix evenly.
In microwave safe bowl, melt almond bark. When melted, stir in peanut butter. Spread evenly onto wax paper covered counter and spread out in a thin layer. Cool about 2-3 hours...This makes great gifts in fun containers for Christmas!

Popcorn

Tammy,
I wrote about my love of popcorn a few months back for the $5 dinner mom. There are so many options with popcorn! She'll be posting my recipe for caramel corn in the next week or so as well. :)

popcorn and parmesan

My absolutely favorite (only?) way to eat popcorn is with parmesan cheese. Except I found myself frustrated with the amount left in the bottom of the bowl, so I put the cheese in a small bowl and then dip a few kernels at a time in it. My two year old insists on eating her popcorn the same way now. I figure at least it's calcium!
