This popcorn encompasses the best of both worlds. Sweet and salty. In the UK at the movie theater you can either buy sweet popcorn or salty popcorn, but what if I want both? What’s a girl to do! Make my own sweet and salty hybrid I suppose.
This recipe is from 101 Things to do with Popcorn, read the review here. I made my salty sweet popcorn with honey roasted peanuts, chocolate chips and a drizzle of melted chocolate.
8 cups popcorn
1 cup peanuts (I used honey roasted)
1/2 dark corn syrup (I used golden syrup)
1/2 tbs butter
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cups chocolate chips (I saved a few extra to throw in with the peanuts)
- In a saucepan bring the corn syrup and butter to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the baking soda.
- Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and pour the syrup over top to coat. Stir in the peanuts. Pour onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 second intervals. Drizzle over the popcorn.
- Once cool serve right away. It will keep for 1-2 days in an airtight container.
