If  you want to celebrate National Popcorn Day in January. Seriously, there is a day. Or maybe you’re just looking for some delicious flavored popcorn recipes to make to snack on. I have 12 of the best ones out there! (originally published 1/16, affiliate links present)

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
  • 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.

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.
