Butter, caramel, or kettle – popcorn is one of my favorite snacks. I don’t care how you make it, I’m there.
I especially love to eat popcorn at the movies and we even have a movie theater that offers both butter and kettle popcorn. Well, it is national popcorn day today so of course I had to join in on the celebration.
For this wonderful food holiday, I made a fun popcorn recipe – avalanche popcorn. It has everything you would find in an avalanche bar plus popcorn. Once you start munchimg on it, it’s hard to stop.
I also have teamed up with some other great food blogger for 2016 to celebrate a food holiday each month. Below is even more fabulous recipes from the #celebratingfood2016 bloggers to choose from for this tasty holiday.
I also wanted to make sure I share with you how to make popcorn in your microwave. There is no need for a hot air popper if you have a brown paper lunch sack along with your microwave.
- ⅓ cup popcorn kernels
- 1 brown paper lunch sack
- Place the kernels in the bottom of the brown paper sack.
- Fold down the top of the sack 2 times.
- Place in the microwave on high and cook for 1½ - 2 minutes.
- 8 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp peanut butter
- ⅓ cup rice krispies cereal
- 1 cup marshmallows
- ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
- Place popcorn in a large bowl being sure to remove any unpopped kernels.
- In a small microwave safe bowl, add the white chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave for 20 second intervals stirring after each one until fully melted and blended together.
- Pour chocolate mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat. Then add in the rice krispies, marshmallows, and mini chocolate chips. Toss to coat.
- Pour popcorn out onto a baking sheet and allow to cool.
