Addictive. Delicious. Can’t. Stop. Eating. That’s the best way to describe this candylike popcorn recipe, which comes together from standard pantry staples. You’ll make a quick butter-spiked honey sauce that has a generous dose of salt to balance the sweetness and add sophistication. Choose your favorite nut to stir in, or go for a mix of a few. Pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds would even taste great, too. Serve the popcorn as an afternoon treat with tea or pair with a bitter cocktail to play off the sugary honey.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat your largest bowl with cooking spray. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Pop popcorn according to package directions; transfer to bowl and add nuts.

Step 3

Combine honey, butter, and salt in a medium skillet over medium. Cook, stirring often, until slightly darkened, about 4 minutes. Pour honey mixture over popcorn and nuts and, using a rubber spatula, toss to coat. Spread in an even layer on prepared baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake until darkened and bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir to incorporate honey syrup, then let cool completely.
