I Need A Quick, Sugary Snack Stat!

Recommended Posts

Guest Damo

Just been dumped? Had a bad day? Lonely and hungry? :( Well pop on a Meg Ryan movie and get the pop-corn maker out.

While your corn is a-poppin, melt some butter in the microwave (at a ratio of roughly 1 tablespoon of butter per 1.5 tablespoons of unpopped kernals) and then mix in some brown sugar to make a hot, buttery, caramel sauce. Drissle over the pop-corn and give in to the sweet, sweet goodness.

This is probably on the generous side of the sauce but you should be right at working out a happy mix for yourself pretty quickly. Don't worry about exact measuring - if you don't make enough sauce, you can say it's more healthy that way, if you make too much sauce... well go pop some more corn.

Probably not best off throwing this pop-corn at people quoting Meg or loudly talking during your movie as it's pretty sticky stuff. But you won't want to waste any anyway.

I'd put on at least 3 tablespoons of kernals for a serving. Maybe 6 if it was an exceptionally bad day... or you have company... ;)

I've been making something similar for my son called 1-2-3 popcorn. Melt 1 TB shortening in a heavy pan on the stove over med or med-high heat. Add 2 TB granulated sugar and 3TB popping corn. Put a lid on and shake pan back and forth occasionally. Take off the heat as the popping slows down. The sugar and shortening make a carmel coating.

You can also put 1/4 cup regular popping corn in a lunch size brown paper bag along with a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of brown sugar. Fold over the very top of the bag (twice), staple it shut (staples at least three inches apart), and put it in the microwave. (Listen for when the pops start subsiding, then take it out - that's about 1:35 on my microwave.)

I fix something a little different that has a salty-sweetness. It is Curry Popcorn...air-popped popcorn, dizzled with a mixture of olive oil (or butter), curry powder, a dash of sugar (or more if you want), a pinch of salt, and a dash of ginger powder. Stir mixture and dizzle over popcorn. Sorry, I don't measure things. :lol:

My husband and 17 month old love it!
