1. Honey And Caramel Flavoured Popcorn

No Christmas celebration is complete without binge-watching movies, and these popcorns are the best accompaniment for it.

What You Need

How To Make

  • Start by taking a pan and adding some oil to it. Place the pan on medium heat and let the oil warm up. Add a few pieces of corn.
  • Once the pieces begin to start forming a circular shape, add in the remaining corn pieces. Place a lid over the pan and let the corns pop inside it.
  • If you can see the corns popped completely or the popping sounds stops, remove the lid and turn off the flame. Put the popcorn in a large bowl.
  • Take another pan and add butter, sugar and honey to it. Place it on medium flame and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Once it has adequately mixed, let it boil and then reduce the flame, cooking it for another 8 minutes or so.
  • Pour this mixture all over the popcorn after turning off the heat. Stir it properly so that it covers everything. Let it cool down before you dive into it.
