WHAT KIND OF POPCORN DO YOU USE TO MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE POPCORN?

You can use microwave popcorn, air-popped popcorn, or you can use my favorite stove-popped popcorn that is made with coconut oil. I haven’t used microwave popcorn in quite a while. At first it was because of the fact that I kept reading things about how it was so bad for you, but then once I started making my own popcorn on the stove, I realized how much better fresh popcorn tastes! If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s so easy and it’s so much yummier too.

HOW DO YOU MAKE POPCORN ON THE STOVE?

I used to just use a large stockpot to make popcorn on the stove (which works great!), but I recently got this popcorn maker and it makes the whole process even easier. The popcorn cooks perfectly every time. To make popcorn on the stove:

  1. Put 1-2 Tbsp of coconut oil in the stovetop popcorn maker or in your stockpot. If you are using a stockpot, make sure you have a lid!
  2. Turn the heat on medium high and add about 6-7 “test” kernels to the pot. Put the lid on and wait for the kernels to start popping.
  3. As soon as the test kernels start popping, you can add the rest of the popcorn kernels. 1/8 cup of popcorn kernels will yield about 4 cups of popped popcorn, so you will want about 1/4 cup of kernels to make 8 cups of popped popcorn. I usually do a little bit extra though, it doesn’t have to be exact!
  4. Replace the lid and either continuously stir the handle on the stovetop popcorn maker or periodically shake your stockpot to prevent the kernels from settling in one spot and burning. As soon as the popping starts to slow down significantly, remove the pan from heat. That’s it!

IS PUMPKIN SPICE POPCORN GLUTEN FREE?

Yes, caramel popcorn is gluten free which makes this a great snack for those who can’t eat gluten. Most popcorn recipes are perfect for those with gluten sensitivities because there is no gluten in popcorn! There are only 3 ingredients in the sauce so it is very easy to identify other potential allergies as well – all gluten free as well!

How to make Pumpkin Pie Spice

I usually cheat and buy pre-made Pumpkin Pie Spice at the store, but it is also very easy to make your own! Just mix 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ground ginger and 1/8 tsp ground cloves. This makes the perfect amount for this recipe!

Flavored popcorn is a perfect potluck dessert- it is very cost effective, feeds a crowd, and is so simple to make. Once you start making flavored popcorn recipes, you are not going to want to stop!

Easy Oreo Popcorn recipe

Ingredients in OREO Popcorn

-Popcorn: Air popped popcorn is the best kind to use while making flavored popcorn recipes because it is straight up, unapologetic unbuttered popcorn. You’ll want unbuttered popcorn so the chocolate sticks to the popcorn and doesn’t just slide off. If you don’t have an air popper on hand- look for a microwave bag of the all natural, unbuttered popcorn.

-Oreos: We will want both Oreo crumbs and broken up whole cookies, so grab an entire package while you are at the store.

-White Chocolate: You can use white almond bark if you’d like, but white chocolate chips work just as well.

How to make Cookies and Cream Popcorn

Making Oreo popcorn is a really easy and simple process.

First, we will start with popped, unbuttered popcorn. Remove any un-popped kernels.

Next, cover the popcorn in melted white chocolate before tossing Oreo crumbs all over the chocolate covered popcorn.

Lastly, lay the popcorn out on some parchment paper, add some Oreo cookie pieces and then drizzle everything with white chocolate.

Allow for the white chocolate to harden before breaking into pieces and serving.

Servings: 18

Calories: 451kcal

Ingredients

  • 9 cups popped popcorn
  • 3/4 cup oreo cookie crumbs
  • 10 oreos broken into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips divided

Instructions

  • Pop and measure the popped popcorn into a large bowl, removing any unpopped kernels. Place about 15 Oreo cookies in a quart sized bag and smash using a jar, the flat side of a meat tenderizer or a rolling pin. Set aside.

  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1 cup of the white chocolate for about 1 minute 15 seconds. Let chocolate sit for 2 minutes, then gently stir. If it’s not completely melted yet, return to the microwave in 15 second intervals, letting it sit for 1-2 minutes in between. Go slow- you don’t want to seize your chocolate!

  • Pour the white chocolate over the popcorn and stir to evenly coat the popcorn in chocolate.

  • Grab the bag of crushed Oreos and, holding the bag closed most of the way, sprinkle the oreo cookie crumbs & smallest pieces over the popcorn. Gently stir until the popcorn is coated in cookie crumbs.

  • Spread the popcorn out onto parchment paper and sprinkle with remaining Oreo pieces.

  • Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips and then drizzle over the top of the popcorn.

  • Allow the chocolate to set up before serving.

How to easily remove un-popped Popcorn Kernels

My favorite way to do this is to pour your popped popcorn onto a cookie cooling rack. All of the big, popped popcorn will stay on top while all of the kernels will fall through the holes.

Just set your cookie cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet to catch all of the extra kernels. There is nothing worse than finding a hard kernel in your popcorn!

How to store dessert Popcorns

Storage is something that is so important when it comes to popcorn. If it is left in a bowl, uncovered, the popcorn will quickly become stale. Which we do not want! Don’t just leave it in a bowl! The best way to store your popcorn and keep it fresh is by putting it into large zip-top bags and removing as much air as possible from the top.

What is the best way to make popcorn?

You can make popcorn in any one of the following ways:

  • Air-popped: This is easiest if you have an air popper like this one. If you don’t have an air popper, you can use a paper lunch bag. All you have to do it place about 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in a brown paper lunch bag and fold the top over 1-2 times. Place upright in the microwave and microwave for about 1.5-2.5 minutes – until the gap between pops is one second long.
  • Stove popped: Popcorn can easily be made on the stove and this is the method I prefer because I like the consistency/texture of the popcorn the best. Directions can be found earlier in this post!
  • Microwave: You can definitely use microwave popcorn in this popcorn cake recipe if you prefer. The recipe works a little better if you use a more natural popcorn that does not have a lot of salt or butter on it. The plainer the better!
