We are huge popcorn fans at our house. I grew up on popcorn. A big bowl of popcorn and a bag of M & M’s every Sunday night as we watched Wonderful World of Disney. Am I dating myself?
We love all forms of popcorn but one of our favorites is this easy Microwave Caramel Corn. It is a recipe a friend gave to me over 20 years and we have never found a caramel corn recipe we like better. It is often requested by my children in a care package.
When my oldest son was a missionary for our church he spent two months in the missionary training center learning Spanish. I sent him a care package every week and caramel corn was often in it. In fact I got a letter from one of the other missionaries in the training center asking me for the recipe! How cute is that.
While doing a little shopping at Target last week I noticed a bag of Gingerbread flavored caramel corn in all their holiday treats! I love gingerbread and thought it was a perfect way to dress up some caramel corn so I headed home to try it out!
I have to tell you it is a pretty brilliant flavor combination – caramel corn, white chocolate and gingerbread!
I put together a gingerbread seasoning mix using cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg and cloves. I added the seasoning in with the hot caramel mix.
After it cooled I drizzled it with some melted white chocolate.
For other popcorn treats check out these:
- 1 batch Caramel Corn
- ½ C white chocolate, melted
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp ground ginger
- ½ Tbsp allspice
- ½ Tbsp nutmeg
- ½ Tbsp ground cloves
- Add 3 tsp of gingerbread seasoning in with caramel corn mixture (add when you add in the baking soda)
- Follow directions in caramel corn recipe and after you have spread the caramel corn onto wax paper drizzle with melted white chocolate.
- Cool complete and enjoy!
- You will have extra seasoning left over to enjoy in more popcorn later.
