I love popcorn, and I’m always trying to come up with new ways to make it. I’ve shared several of my recipes in the past, and today, I have a few more. And for those of you who are still trying to come up with a last minute Christmas gift, I have a very tasty idea for you!
How many of you buy those big tubs of popcorn at the store with multiple flavors? I feel like it isn’t really Christmas without one! So this year, I thought, why not make my own gourmet popcorn to give as gifts…and so begun my day long adventure of making delicious popcorn!
In the end, I made four different kinds. I bought clear, plastic goodie bags at Target, and divided them into those bags. And then, I stuffed them into a stocking I bought at Target for $1. It was quick and cute, and didn’t cost a lot. If you want, you could even buy a bucket like the popcorn buckets at the store, and fill it up with different flavors, or just make these quick and cute popcorn sampler bags. If you have a hard to shop for person on your list, definitely consider doing this!
Now…for the recipes!
The first one I made was a chili cheddar popcorn. I couldn’t get enough of this one!
