Orchard Popcorn

Do you like going to the apple orchards in the Fall? I love it! They are just exploding with color and activity this time of year. It’s funny though, I’ve been going to these places for years and have never picked a single apple! I like looking at and experiencing everythingelse…especially during the week when the crowds are not there…Pumpkins


My favorite attractions at the orchards are the pumpkins, cute decor…


the beautiful flowers…

purple wildflowers








…and of course, the food! At one of the places, I sampled the best popcorn…

 I expected the usual buttery salty taste and then…well – got something else! I asked the man what was on the popped corn and he said “sugar”. I thought “sugar?!” but it did have a sweet taste to it.

Here is what I came up with… I started out with 2 T of sugar but if you have a sweet tooth, you may want to add 1 Tablespoon more. The same goes for the Molly Mcbutter sprinkles…I kept it at 2 Tablespoons but you may want to add more depending upon your sweet/salty preference.

This makes a great snack for movie night or a party and makes a great addition to Halloween treat bags!

Into a very large bowl put:

      8 cups popped corn

Over the popped corn drizzle:

      1/2 cup melted butter

Mix well then sprinkle over the top:

      2 T Molly Mcbutter sprinkles

      3 T sugar

Toss with the popped corn and serve! Yummmmmmm…Happy Fall!
