I found this fantastic recipe last night, a ridiculously fun sundae. These little bowls of tasty popcorn sundae are perfect for any child’s birthday celebration. The pink, the sprinkles, the sticky sweet caramel corn- it would make for a killer party. Hope you’re having a fab week!

Popcorn Crunch Sundae 
Serve 4-6

Caramel Corn:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 cups popped popcorn
  • 1/2 cup salted roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Rub with butter or spray with nonstick spray and set aside. Combine popcorn and peanuts in a large mixing bowl.

Bring sugar, honey, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add butter and salt, stir until melted. Continue to cook over medium high heat, stirring often until caramel is a deep amber color (10-12 minutes).

Working quickly pour caramel over popcorn mixture and toss with a heatproof spatula to coat. Transfer popcorn to prepared baking sheet, spread out a bit, and let cool. Once cooled, break into pieces.
