Your guests will be blown away by the creativity and won’t be able to stop munching. But I don’t keep this recipe set aside just for guests. That would be wrong. Our family loves to munch on popcorn during a movie. We all snuggle up under a blanket on the couch and share a big bowl. Occasionally, as a special treat I make a batch of some type of flavored popcorn as a combination dessert and evening snack. This Cranberry Macadamia White Chocolate Popcorn has fiber from the popcorn, dried fruit, and nuts for added protein. It can totally be classified as healthy. Pinky swear!
The combinations are endless for mixed up popcorn. All you have to do is pop some popcorn and use your imagination to combine your family’s favorite flavors. The baking aisle right now is filled with a huge variety of sweets to bake into cookies. You can find everything to mini caramel bits to broken Andes candies, and there are plenty of options for the chocolate drizzle too. Heck, you can even take the super easy route and microwave the popcorn to get you started.
