Sweet Honey Popcorn

Last week I already said I recently had a sudden urge to start popping popcorn myself. The first flavor I wanted to try out was honey popcorn. After trying out several recipes I came across Pat Daniels recipe which I adapted slightly to create my perfect honey popcorn.

When the popcorn is nice and golden brown like this take it out of the oven and keep stirring the mixture every few minutes. As the mixture cools, the popcorn will get nice and crispy (no sticky honey fingers!).

Please note that the cup measurements in this recipe are approximate. I have added cups for those that prefer using cups. The recipe is most accurate using weights measurements.

    Hey Rachel,
    Thanks for sharing. Please do I omit sugar when popping the kernels or do I use sweetened popcorn for this?

      Hi Jane,
      I don’t use any sugar to pop the kernels. The honey mixture will give sweetness to the popcorn.

    Hi! I’m Samuel.
    Thanks so much for sharing great idea. Pls I want to know if I can jst mix a certain measure of butter and honey together without adding water, after popping the corn and then pour the mixture to the already popped corn.

      Hi Samuel,
      I have never tried this mixture without the water, so I wouldn’t be able to tell you for certain if it’ll work or not.

    All along i had wanted to know the procedures of sweet honey pop cones and your prescriptions have been helpful. But is it possible for me to mix honey, salt and butter first before making the cones then i get the honey mixture and stir it very well with the cone grains then i heat them at once to make pop cones? You know in Uganda we make them locally and its a good business venture. i wish to take it higher and skill the youth. Therefore i need your feed back please. Reference: this is how we make our local cones. we mix cooking vegetable oil with the cone~grains and heat for a short time.

      Hi Ampaire: if I understand your question correctly (what are sweet honey pop “cones”?) and you’re referring to popcorn, the answer is NO. The corn kennels need to be popped first or they won’t pop at all if there’s anything more than corn kennels and oil in the pan. Follow the recipe, it’s a good one.

      Hi Ampaire,
      I haven’t tried to pop the corn kennels with other ingredients mixed into the oil myself. The only way to find out is to try it, but I’m afraid as Lenir says that the corns won’t pop.

    Delicious! I used 3 Tbsp of honey and 4 Tbsp of earth balance, as for my intolerance to dairy. Added 1/8 tsp of cayenne and OUT OF THIS WORLD good! Thanks for the recipe. I saw some complicated caramel buffalo sauce popcorn on bon appetite the other day and wanted it without the complication of possibly failing at caramel and this was perfect!!!

      Hi Nicolette, I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe. Your additions sound delicious as well, I’ll be giving it a try 🙂
