Oscar Party Popcorn Bar


friend Lisa got me a Whirley-Pop Popcorn Popper for my birthday one year, and I LOVE it. I use it all the time. It can make up to 6 quartz of popcorn in about 3 minutes. It has a patented stirring mechanism that prevents the kernels from burning. My favorite part about popcorn is getting creative with the toppings. Here are 4 of my favorite (and easy) popcorn recipes, just in time for an Oscar party tonight!

6 cups popcorn, popped

3 tsp hot sauce

2 tbsp powdered cheddar cheese

While the popcorn is still hot, put it in a plastic bag and pour the hot sauce inside. Shake vigorously until the popcorn is coated. Sprinkle the powdered cheddar cheese in the bag and shake vigorously again. Serve right away.



6 cups popcorn, popped

4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup pecorino cheese, finely & freshly grated

2 tsp truffle salt

1 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced

In a large bowl, drizzle some of the melted butter over the popcorn, then sprinkle lightly with truffle salt, rosemary and pecorino. Toss a bit and repeat as many times as needed; taste as you go. (This one is my absolute favorite!)

Break into smaller chunks and serve.

Pop the popcorn and transfer it to a large bowl. Cook the butter, sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, stirring consistently. Once the mixture comes to a boil, cook another 5 minutes.

I found the classic red and white stripe boxes here.
