Last week I promised you luvvlies that I would bring you some flavored popcorns to add an extra pop (oh I went there!), to your Oscar viewing! I've always been interested in playing with popcorn as a canvas for various flavors, and this was a great time to explore that! Both of these recipes are super simple, super quick, and take just a few ingredients. flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn Basil Pesto Popcorn  Ingredients  1 bag of popcorn** 3 tbsps of Basil Pesto sauce 1 tbsp of butter Salt **For both popcorns, I used slightly butted popcorn. It would work best with that or no butter popcorn packs. Directions Pop your popcorn like normal! Yes, just pop regular popcorn and this will transform into a delicious, sophisticated treat. Once the popcorn is popped, you will pour the melted butter, basil pesto sauce, and salt over the popcorn. Mix it all together and voila! Refrigerate or set out for an hour or so to allow the popcorn to absorb the mix. Then you're ready to serve.  flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn Mint Chocolate Popcorn (Topped with Thin Mints!!!) 1 bag of popcorn 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup of chopped Andes mints Chopped Thin Mints for topping flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn Again, pop your popcorn. After, combine the chocolate chips and chopped Andes mints. Melt for thirty seconds, if it isn't completely melted, melt in ten second increments until melted. Make sure not to burn the precious mint chocolate mixture! As soon as everything is melted, pour on top of the popcorn, mix and cover with chopped thin mints. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens and then you're ready to serve it. Y'all, chocolate and popcorn are one of my favorite combinations. It reminds me of being young and sneaking packs of M&Ms into the theater to eat with my popcorn. And since it's Girl Scout season, top with Thin Mints, because, y'know, they are the BEST girl scout cookie. flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn flavoredpopcorn, popcorn, oscar watch party, basil pesto, thin mints, andes mints, mint popcorn Enjoy ladies!
