As is the norm with our recipes, this popcorn recipe is super easy and perfect for your next celebration. Which for a lot of us will be Easter but this could just as easily be used for any spring gathering. As I was making it this weekend I was so happy because I finally feel like it is truly spring. I start to get a lot more active at this time of year it’s like my body is waking up from hibernation a bit and I am ready to double down on all of my fitness goals. This also means that I feel less guilty in indulging in all of the incredible Easter candy out there. Now you name me one holiday that has better candy than Easter. Blanking? That is because there is no holiday that beats Easter when it comes to the candy game. None. Cadbury eggs (mini and large), Reese’s eggs, Peeps (where the cuteness makes up for taste), Butterfinger eggs, Oreo eggs (they’re a thing!), peanut butter eggs, egg M&Ms, etc. It is just the best.
Now I am really wishing I had a stash of this candy right now.
Well it also turns out, to no surprise, that this candy is the perfect addition to popcorn. And this popcorn is possibly the best popcorn I have ever had. And I buy popcorn every time I am at the store. Machelle had this genius idea to add pudding mix to popcorn and this one uses my favorite flavor of all time – pistachio. As you will see you can also experiment with other flavors – caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, chocolate, and banana cream would all be delicious as well.
This recipe could work for any occasion with other candy or no candy at all. But I decided to add my favorite Easter candy given that Easter is only six days away. So if you’re heading to a nice family dinner or an egg hunt this upcoming weekend make sure to bring this simple popcorn with you!
