20 Delicious Popcorn Recipes that Will Make Your Movie Night More Delightful

20 Delicious Popcorn Recipes that Will Make Your Movie Night More Delightful

We love our movie nights and our little get-togethers with friends and family, so why not try something a little daring with a treat that usually only gets the choice of butter and salt.  These popcorn recipes that are fun, sophisticated, playful, and exotic will turn up the fun. They are also a super safe way to start segueing into more exotic culinary adventures.

1.  Peanut Butter Cashew Popcorn

PB CASHEW

    This popcorn recipe from Julie’s Eats & Treats is a grown-up popcorn ball that has cashews and honey as some of the ingredients.  Sticky sweet, it will have you reaching for more.

    2.  Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn

    SPICEY BACON

      Spicy and with bacon!  That is enough said from A Cozy Kitchen. This popcorn recipe will make many weak in the knees.

      3.  Funfetti Popcorn

      Funfetti Popcorn

        Got kids or just a kid at heart? Stir up some fun with this rainbow sprinkle popcorn covered in cake batter mix and melted white chocolate. Fun and easy to make and to eat!

        4.  Turtle Popcorn

          Get me started with anything that has real butter, brown sugar, and pecans! This will turn your favorite candy into your favorite popcorn.

          5.  Wasabi Popcorn

            I can’t do everything sticky sweet, so turn up the heat with wasabi and cayenne pepper powdered popcorn! The sweet comes from the brown sugar.

            6.  Truffle Bacon Popcorn

              Did someone say bacon? I don’t know if the truffle salt is worth the expense, but I do know a little substitution would probably not be missed in lieu of more bacon and dashed with parmesan cheese.

              7.  Curried Popcorn

              curried popcorn

                Want something with curry in a hurry? You can pop the popcorn and stir in the ingredients after. This will give you a different texture you might enjoy. But try it their way too, because the olive oil and the curry in the pan with the sugar while popping does something special with the flavor.

                8.  PB & J Popcorn

                PB&J Popcorn

                  Something for the kids again and so pretty for presentation. It might be fun to do this with different jellies. The white chocolate is a great way to get any flavor to stick. You may have to play with the amount of jelly to get the color and flavor balance you want.

                  9.  Tequila Popcorn

                  Tequila Popcorn

                    Only a dash of tequila, cayenne, and cumin with some lime juice, so don’t think this is going to soggy or so risque. It is, however, fun and the flavor and smell could be very enjoyable and complimentary to a themed party. Got to try it.

                    10.  Taco Popcorn

                    Taco Popcorn

                      This is supposed to taste like Doritos! So I would try it out just the see, but I was missing the idea of real cheese melting all over the place. So I might just improvise and sprinkle on some cheddar. Get real cheesy!

                      11.  Coconut Curry Popcorn

                      Coconut Curry Popcorn

                        With curry, coconut oil, and cumin, you can get a little adventurous without breaking your budget or your kitchen. I think I’d pair this with a great movie from India. Have a themed movie night.

                        12.  Key Lime Pie Popcorn

                        Advertising

                        Key Lime Pie Popcorn

                          Miniature melted marshmallows and melted white chocolate make it an easy win. Key Lime frosting and more melted dark chocolate with graham cracker chunks make this a win-win.

                          13.  Salted Caramel Almond Pretzel Popcorn

                          Salted Caramel Almond Pretzel Popcorn

                            Salted caramel has got to be the great marketing catch phrase of the confection market. With the almonds and the pretzels to complete the dish, the only think I am wanted is maybe some dark chocolate drizzled on.

                            14.  Cookies and Cream

                            cookies and cream

                              There are only three ingredients: popcorn, Oreos, and white chocolate. Go for it!

                              15.  Reese’s Peanut Butter Popcorn

                              Reeses-peanut-butter-popcorn32

                                I’m not sure if they needed more than three ingredients with this one. The popcorn, mini peanut butter cups, and with melted chocolate chips was enough to get me going. But their way is great, too.

                                16.  Parmesan Basil Popcorn

                                Advertising

                                parmesean basil popcorn

                                  Healthy and easy, this tasty treat you can whip up super quick with less mess. Just some coconut oil and some freshly grated parmesan and a little bit of basil.

                                  17.  Almond Joy Popcorn

                                  almond joy popcorn

                                    For this, you are not just tossing your favorite candy bar into a hot bowl of popcorn. The ingredients are parsed out and you mix it all together in perfect harmony to get this yummy dish.

                                    18.  White Chocolate Thin Mint Popcorn

                                    white-chocolate-thin-mint-popcorn-600x900

                                      In less than 10 minutes with just a handful of chopped up thin mint cookies, you will have a wonderful snack.

                                      19.  Cinnamon Bun Popcorn

                                      cinnamon caramel corn 1

                                        If this could have a caramel crust on the outside that you crunch through bite after bite, you would have some serious noshing.

                                        20.  Nutella Popcorn

                                        caramel-nutella-popcorn

                                          How many people in the world love that particular brand of hazelnut chocolate spread? And how wonderful and idea than to spread it all over some popcorn. Take a little extra time and a few extra ingredients, and you will have a splendid treat many of your friends would love to eat.

                                          5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                                          5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                                          Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

                                          You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

                                          Advertising

                                          1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

                                          It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

                                          Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

                                          2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

                                          If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

                                          3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

                                          If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

                                          4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

                                          A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

                                          5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

                                          If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

                                          Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
