I love popcorn combinations. During the holiday it just seems to be the perfect time to make a big container of something yummy to either give away as small gifts in a bag...or to have on hand for when guests arrive and they want a little something to munch on. I know there are many different variations on here..hope you don't mind just one more! :)

How to Make Snickers Popcorn

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

    While oven preheats..make the popcorn...once done popping the popcorn place in an extra large bowl; Set aside.
  2. Over medium heat boil butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour over your popcorn and stir to coat evenly.

Remove from pan and transfer popcorn back to wax paper to cool. **** If you like to add more chopped snickers then the recipe calls for...I say go for it!
