What day is it today?
And what does Wednesday mean?
Orange Wednesday!I love the cinema, but maybe, just maybe, I love the popcorn more. Popcorn is my kind of treat. However sometimes, the getting to cinema just seems too much effort, but fear not, with my recipe for popcorn as delicious as Ed Westwick, a home movie will be just as good!
You will need:
- 100g Popcorn kernels
- 2 Tbs Peanut Butter
- 65g Brown Sugar
- 3 Tbs Maple Syrup
- 2 Tsp Salt
- Cooking Oil
In a large saucepan, pour in a thin layer of oil, just enough to cover the bottom of the pan, and heat on a medium temperature until its hot but not smoking.
Then add in the kernels, swirl to cover all of them in the oil, then put on the lid and wait for the magic to happen!
The kernels should start to pop- first one scared the living daylights out of me!
Once all have popped, transfer to a bowl to cool down.
Now in another pan, heat the sugar and syrup together until completely dissolved.
Next add in the peanut butter until completely melted in.
Then add the salt (I actually added a bit more salt because I like my popcorn more salty, but salty popcorn isn’t to everyone’s taste, so 2 is a middle ground.)
Finally, take off the heat and immediately pour over the popcorn and start to stir and cover all the popcorn quickly as it sets fast.
Now, you can either let it cool completely in the fridge for a while so it sets, or I quite like to heat it up in short bursts of 15 seconds in the microwave for that ooey-gooey goodness... a bit like Ed really.
