Nothing goes better with a Netflix binge session than a big old bowl of popcorn. Am I right? I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to get a little fancy with my popcorn, so today I wanted to share a five of my favorite fancy popcorn recipes with you.
8 cups Popped popcorn — *
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Tang — powdered orange drink
1/3 cup Light corn syrup
1/3 cup Water
1/4 cup Butter
1/2 teaspoon Orange extract
1 teaspoon Baking soda
* 2 tbls of unpopped popcorn makes 4 cups (or 1 ounce) popped popcorn.
Place popcorn in a large buttered baking pan. In separate pan, combine sugar, drink mix, syrup, water and butter. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cook until mixture reaches 250~ on a candy thermometer, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in orange extract and baking soda. Pour over popcorn, mixing well. Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool completely.
