Is popcorn the greatest snack on the planet? We’d have to argue yes. There are few things better or more American than curling up on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and our favorite movie. One of the best things about this delicious snack is how easy it is to prepare. Just pop a bag of kernels in a microwave drawer (our SMD247OASY 24 Inch Microwave Drawer is a great choice) and use the pre-fixed popcorn setting for the perfect bag every time. Sometimes though, we’re feeling adventurous and want to elevate our favorite snack. Check out these recipes below that take the average popcorn to the next level. If normal popcorn isn’t exciting enough for you, you’ve come to the right place.
Given our matcha obsession, it’s only natural that we would include a matcha-infused popcorn recipe. This recipe is super simple to make and perfect for the next time we want to add a healthy kick to our favorite snack so we can feel less guilty vegging out and eating popcorn. Simply pop a favorite bag of popcorn in the microwave and use the popcorn setting to cook. Once all the kernels have popped pour into a bowl and dust with matcha powder (make it extra fresh with our Tea Ceré grinding function for tencha leaves) and a little bit of sugar. Stir to coat evenly and enjoy hot (better with a cup of matcha by our side of course).
Some days we’re in need of something a little extra sweet. This popcorn recipe is sure to curb any sugar cravings and leave any sweet tooth satisfied. Cook the popcorn as directed and set aside in a large bowl. Over medium heat stir together marshmallows and butter, stirring constantly. Once the marshmallows have melted, remove from heat and add some vanilla, milk and cake mix. Pour mixture over popcorn and stir. Top with some sprinkles and get ready to enjoy a sweet and nostalgic snack that rivals any birthday cake!
Sometimes we want a snack that packs a little punch. On those days this is the recipe we’re turning to. Microwave popcorn as directed and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle a tablespoon of chili powder over top and mix so that the powder is evenly distributed. Squeeze some lime juice over top and add a bit of lime zest from the rind. Mix together and add a sprinkle of salt to taste. Kick back and enjoy this southwestern-inspired snack.
