Oscar Party Popcorn Bar

oscar-party-popcorn-bar-1

My friend Lisa got me a Whirley-Pop Popcorn Popper159 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!

buffalo-cheddar-popcorn

Ingredients:

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.

truffle-rosemary-popcorn

Ingredients:

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!)

cookies-cream-popcorn

Ingredients:

6 cups popcorn, popped

20 Oreos, finely crushed

24 oz. white chocolate

Melt white chocolate according to package directions until completely melted and smooth consistency. Use a double broiler so you don’t burn the chocolate. Drizzle melted chocolate over popped popcorn that is spread out onto a cookie sheet. Sprinkle finely crushed Oreo crumbs through out popcorn to evenly distribute. Let chocolate cool and harden. Break into smaller chunks and serve.

salted-caramel-bourbon-popcorn

Ingredients:

6 cups popcorn, popped

6 tbsp butter

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

3 tbsp light corn syrup

Heaping 1/4 tsp salt, plus more for sprinkling

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp bourbon

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. Remove from heat and add the bourbon and vanilla. Stir thoroughly and immediately pour over the popcorn. Use a rubber spatula to stir until the popcorn is coated. Then spread it out onto a baking sheet in an even layer. Sprinkle a wee bit more salt on top. Bake for 35 minutes, midway stirring the popcorn once more time. Let cool before eating.

I found the classic red and white stripe boxes here159.
