My Butterkist creation

The girls are getting very excited for Halloween and are having a mini Halloween party.  No party is complete however without some party food, and the girls want to celebrate in style.  This was a perfect opportunity for us to get creative with the new Discoveries popcorn range from Butterkist.


The new Discoveries range from Butterkist has three flavours, Salted Caramel [our favourite], Chili and Lime, and finally Hickory Pork.  We decided to create a savour dish and a sweet dish and began creating.  Well I say we began, the girls started eating the Chili and Lime popcorn and I got to work!

First was the savoury dish

Ingredients

50g butter
150g grated cheese
Food colouring [optional]
Spring onions
1 Bag Hickory Pork Butterkist Popcorn



Method

1. Melt the butter and cheese in a pan.
2. Add food colouring if desired and to the required colour
3. Chop the spring onions and add to the pain
4. Finally add the popcorn and mix well
5. Serve

I added green food colouring as I wanted to create a spooky slime feel, as it is a Halloween party.  The food colouring adds no flavour so it is completely optional.  


For the sweet dish I decided to create a Rocky Road using the Salted Carmel Butterkist.

Ingredients

100g butter
400g chocolate
2 spoons syrup
150g Mini Marshmallows
200g GlacĂ© cherries
160g [a bag] Salted Caramel popcorn


Method
1. Melt the chocolate and butter together and add in the syrup.
2. Place about 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into a separate container.
3. Add half marshmallows, the cherries and the popcorn to the remaining mixture in the pan and stir well.
4. Pour the pan mixture into a brownie tray.
5. Sprinkle over the remaining marshmallows
6. Pour over the rest of the chocolate
7. leave to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.



The sweet dish was preferred over the savoury dish, but then I guess it always would be.  Both dishes really complimented the new discoveries popcorn range from Butterkist and I have to admit to currently wanting another bag of the Salted Caramel flavour!

What would you create?

Thanks to Butterkist for sending the 3 bags of popcorn.  All words are my own opinion.
