How to Make Homemade Flavored Popcorn Recipes


Popcorn is a wonderful low calorie snack, but let's face it: it can taste bland, and sometimes you just want to spice things up. The great thing about this treat is that you can experiment, and mix and match to find fun new flavors. You can still be respectable in your calorie control with some of these suggestions or just cut straight to the sugar and chocolate. Start playing with the basic glaze recipes and see how it turns out.

Things You'll Need

  • 10 c popped corn 1/2 cup butter Honey Brown sugar Flavored salts Garlic and onion powder Worcestershire sauce Dried mustard Onion soup mix Italian spice mix Grated Parmesan cheese Cinnamon and natural raw sugar Chocolate drink mix Grated chocolate, both dark and white
  • Spread the popped corn on a cookie sheet. Place the sheet in a warm oven (250 degrees) while you are making the topping.

  • Melted butter and brown sugar or honey makes a sweet glaze. Melted butter and flavored salts or powders make a savory covering. They are both basic starting places when flavoring popcorn.

  • With a savory glaze, add Italian spices to the butter and drizzle over the popcorn. Shake grated Parmesan cheese over all and mix with a spatula. The cheese sticks to the savory glaze and it makes a wonderful treat.

  • To the basic savory, add several shakes of Worcestershire sauce and a teaspoon of dried mustard. Try some onion soup mix and drizzle over popcorn. Mix and serve.

  • Go for a sweet treat by adding chocolate drink mix to the basic sweet glaze. Drizzle over the popcorn and add grated white and dark chocolate. Mix well and enjoy.

  • Or add cinnamon to the sweet mix. Drizzle and top with coarse raw sugar granules for a different sweet crunch.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep experimenting with different flavors. Try chili powder and powdered lemon or lime. Toss in a handful of chopped dried fruit with a sweet mix.
