Gingerbread Caramel Corn

Gingerbread Caramel Corn

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.

I love to dress up the caramel corn and have shared various varieties here on the blog.  There is Peppermint Bark Caramel Corn, S’more Caramel Corn and Peanut Butter Chocolate Caramel Corn.

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.Gingerbread Caramel Corn

After it cooled I drizzled it with some melted white chocolate.

    Ward told me this morning that this popcorn doesn’t even need the white chocolate! We will make this again and again and again . . .

    This sounds amazing! Not to mention the little gingerbread man sitting in the basket with the popcorn is adorable :D. It’s a perfect snack for this time of year and I bet it would go in 2 minutes if I brought it to a party.
