Popcorn Porn for Valentines Day

Photo-PopcornWhat could be cozier than snuggling up to a romantic movie with your sweetheart on Valentines day? You don’t have to go out on most lovey-dovey day of the year. There can be plenty of romance right at home what with the ease with which Hollywood beams itself into your smart TV. TV time demands snacking and just because you’re not at the movie theatre, that doesn’t mean you need to suffer dry boring popcorn either. imagesPopcorn is a chameleon, it takes on the flavours of whatever you dress it with. It can be plain, salty, sweet, savoury and even pungent. Flavour manufacturers have capitalized on this fact for quite some time and everywhere you find popcorn kernels for sale you also find flavour shakers. But did you know that those shakers are just a bunch of hype? You can make your own popcorn flavours at home with very little effort. With easy, do-it-yourself popcorn flavouring recipes, family movie night just got a whole lot more exciting and as for that Valentine’s date? Now you can whip up some popcorn that tastes as steamy as that romantic movie’s shower scene. Here are some of my favourite recipes:

Sweet Chili Lime
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 lime, juiced
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tbsp granulated sugar

Fill a big bowl with popped corn (about 12 cups). Mix lime juice with butter. Drizzle liquid over popcorn and stir. Mix remaining ingredients and sprinkle them over the corn. Olé!
Chocolate
1/4 c. butter, melted
2 tsp cocao powder
2 Tbsp sugar

Fill a big bowl with popped corn (about 12 cups). Drizzle butter into bowl and stir. Mix cocoa powder and sugar together and then sprinkle over the corn. Sumptuous!

Salted Caramel
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp corn syrup
1 tsp salt

Fill a big bowl with popped corn (about 12 cups). In a heavy bottomed saucepan melt butter and then dissolve brown sugar and corn syrup into the fat. Bring to a boil (be careful not to let it boil over) for four minutes. Remove from heat and pour over the popcorn, stirring to distribute evenly. Sprinkle with salt to finish. Unknown
