A Delicious Potcorn Recipe

Turn ordinary popcorn into a green treat.

Thanks to the creation of cannabis-infused butter, herein after referred to as "budder", mellowing out your snacking experience has never been easier. Budder can be used interchangeably with any recipe that uses butter. People enamored with green edibles have long been familiar with brownies and cookies made with budder, but sometimes we crave something new. When it is a salty, crunchy snack you are hankering for, nothing quite fits the bill like delicious homemade potcorn.

Yes, potcorn. Basically, potcorn is your favorite popcorn popped anyway you like, but with the addition of a budder-saturated flavoring to create a snack most sublime.

Here is the basic recipe. Start with approximately 8 cups of popped corn placed in a large bowl that allows room for stirring. Then, simply drizzle one-half cup of melted budder over the popcorn, making sure to toss it around the bowl to coat the popcorn evenly. Add touch of salt and toss again for the simplest potcorn recipe ever.

In case you don’t have any budder around and need a recipe, check out our post „How To Make Cannabis Butter“.

Potcorn enhanced

Simple potcorn is good enough, but why not make it even better with flavorings? If you like things on the spicy side, a few drops of hot sauce added to the budder kicks things up quite nicely. If it is an Asian vibe you are going for, try adding a little soy sauce and a bit of sesame oil to the melted budder. Flavored salt is another option to try. Any dried spice you can think of is easily added to the salt. Try adding garlic powder, dried Italian seasoning, and grated Parmesan cheese to your salt for Potcorn Italiano. Steak seasoning is also a yummy choice for delicious potcorn, as are those seasoning packets you find in packages of instant ramen noodles.

These are fine ideas if you are craving something salty, but what if it is a sweet tooth driving your munchies? It is easy enough to add a teaspoon of vanilla to your budder, and to sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar over your popcorn instead of salt. However, when it comes to sweet potcorn decadence, nothing beats Chewy Caramel Coated Potcorn.

Chewy Caramel Coated Potcorn

Try this delicious recipe. Have ready 8 cups of popcorn in a bowl big enough to allow stirring. In a medium saucepan or cast iron skillet, combine 2 1/4 cups of brown sugar, 1 cup of budder, 1 cup of light corn syrup, and a dash of sea salt. Bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat while stirring constantly. Once a boil is reached, add a small can of sweetened condensed milk. Return the mixture to a boil and cook for approximately 12 minutes. Remember to keep stirring constantly.

Remove the pan from the burner and stir in a tablespoon of vanilla. Drizzle half of the caramel mixture over the popcorn, toss several times, and then drizzle in the remaining caramel to toss. If you wish, add a little more salt to the popcorn. If for some strange reason you are not planning to eat it right away, the caramel coated potcorn can be stored in an airtight container once it is cooled.

A crispier caramel potcorn can be made with the addition of one extra step. After tossing the popcorn with the caramel, simply spread the mixture on a well-oiled cookie sheet and bake in a 250 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove the potcorn from the oven and spread on a greased sheet of aluminum foil until it is completely cool.

The myriad of ways you can use budder to highlight your popcorn experience are limited only to your imagination, so feel free to create your own special potcorn recipes and enjoy yourself in Munchy Heaven.
