Dessert Popcorn Ideas
A variety is what you need so here are some sweet and some salty for you to enjoy and make! Enjoy my friends! This is what you will need:
- An air popper !!-to make air popped popcorn
- or make Instant Pot popcorn or Ninja Foodi popcorn
- microwave popcorn would work okay but not great
- Baking sheets
- At least one cup popcorn kernels
- A large bowl
- To make toppings
- A few tablespoons melted butter
- brown sugar
- corn syrup
- toasted coconut
- sesame oil
Start to think outside of the box with these really. I mean if you just want caramel corn, follow that recipe for drizzle but go a step further. Throw in other items you love to make it a bit salty too. Anything goes. You can dress it up in clear baggies with a ribbon to tie them up too. Great gift ideas for sure.
Now you can get started and choose which one you’d like to make. First you’ll want to make a batch of plain air popped popcorn.
Then either add popcorn and toss with ingredient toppings in a bowl. Or spread it out on cookie sheets and drizzle over the top. I think making kettle corn is easier in a bowl.
Flavored popcorn recipes
- We made peanut butter chocolate popcorn that was fantastic and super easy to do.
- Zebra popcorn is so good and Creme de la Crumb has a great recipe!
- Inspired by Charm has a great red velvet popcorn recipe.
- Especially in the Fall this pumpkin pie spice popcorn from Cooking Classy would be great.

I mean you can throw in the kitchen sink really. Once you have the drizzle you want there are all sorts of candies and salty snacks you can add. From raisins, to M and M candies to crushed pretzels and nuts. I mean give it a go and see which combination you love.
