Irish Cream Flavored Popcorn

Pin It

Tomorrow is national popcorn day and it just happens to be my favorite snack.  All I have to do is get a whiff of it popping and I need some.... can't resist!  About a year ago I made this sweet popcorn for a challenge using irish cream.

When I go to the movies I practical need the tub for myself.  Mostly because I'm not a butter person, which I know is not the norm, but I just like my movie popcorn lightly salted.... and I don't like to share (just kidding!) 

This recipe was fun to create and easy too. 
  • Pop a third cup of kernels and place in a large bowl then add 3/4 cup of lightly salted almonds.  
  •  In a separate saucepan combine 3 T of butter with 1 T of light corn syrup.  
  • After it melts, whisk in 1/3 cup of confectionery sugar until well blended then add 3 T of Bailey's Irish Cream. 
  • Pour the mixture over the popcorn/almonds and stirred until well combined.  
  • Place mixture on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and place in a 325 degree oven for about 6 minutes stirring twice.  
  • Remove mixture onto a new sheet of wax paper and let cool.  If needed, break up the pieces after it cools.
A little sweet and salty treat for you!


Happy Popcorn Day!
