Flavored popcorn is a rising food trend right now. Be a trend setter and try this Caramel Pumpkin Spice Popcorn for your next movie night.
A few weeks ago when I was in New Jersey at the Duncan Hines test kitchen, one of our discussions was on food that was trending. Flavored popcorn was one of these food items on the list.
Can I tell you just how happy that makes me?
I have been doing different kinds ever since I made this Reese’s Popcorn, and I haven’t stopped since. I like to think I was ahead of this popcorn trend. Shhhh! Don’t tell me any different…just let me stay in this happy bubble.
So of course my mind started thinking of all kinds of new popcorn to share with you.
I had half a bag of Pumpkin Spice M&M’s leftover from when I made these Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies, so I decided to start with those.
I pulled everything out of my baking cupboard hoping to be inspired by something else I already had. Gotta love a treat that doesn’t have you running to the grocery store!
Right in front of me were some Duncan Hines Frosting Creations packets, and the caramel flavor was on top. Ding! Ding! We have a winner. Pumpkin and caramel sounds like just the combo I needed to give this popcorn something different from every thing already made and pinned.
I didn’t want to add too many different flavors or mix ins with this popcorn. Usually I have quite a few extras with the popcorn. Today I decided to go simple and only add marshmallows and the pumpkin M&M’s to the caramel white chocolate. To give it just a slight hit more pumpkin flavor, I also added a white chocolate pumpkin spice drizzle over the popcorn, but you can decide if that’s really for you.
Making this popcorn was just the boost I needed to think up a few more fun flavors. I hope you are ready 🙂
