Prepare Today Homemade: Flavored Popcorn

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
As my children get older they are really enjoying their time in the kitchen.  After school snacks are becoming a little more than just apples or oranges.  My daughter wanted popcorn the other day and after she had made it she said she wished she could have chocolate popcorn.  I agreed with her that that would taste really yummy but she wasn't getting any chocolate for her after school snack.  Then I remembered my Mix-A-Meal powdered flavorings and told her to go wild with flavor combinations.

 The first flavor was, of course, chocolate cream.  It really tasted like chocolate popcorn and we both agreed it was good.  We then decided to add some orange flavor to it to see what that tasted like and it was ok.  It tasted good but we liked the plain chocolate better.

The orange flavor by itself was interesting but not our favorite.  It did make plain popcorn taste better though.

The cinnamon flavor was our favorite!!  Especially when we added some of the chocolate flavor to it.  We just eye balled the amount of flavoring and mixed it with our hands.  It sticks really well to the popcorn when you have melted butter on it, but we also used cooking spray to coat the popcorn.  

The possibilities are almost endless with all the flavor combinations.  It was fun to mix and match all of the flavors and to find out what worked and what didn't.  I found all of my flavors at Honeyville Grain in Salt Lake City.  They carry many more flavors then we used like, coconut, almond, strawberry, maple, lemon, pineapple, banana, and butterscotch.
