Apple Pie Popcorn

Recipe from Julie M.

Every time I want to quit this project I get a friendly nudge from people to continue.  This blog is just for good old fashioned recipes that I want to pass down to my kids.  So thank you to Kathryn for her comment and the nudge to keep me posting these recipes up here.  For Christmas this last year I went on a popcorn kick and made every kind of popcorn the mind could think of.  Popcorn in my mind is comfort food.  My husband was out on church business the other night and I found myself getting my air popper out at 9:00 at night popping myself some popcorn to keep me company.  And yes I sprayed it with olive oil and tossed it in salt.  Sounds gross but I like it!  TOTALLY against my rules for eating after 7:00.  My SIL gave me this recipe to try.  To be honest at first it was almost too rich for me.  But as the taste buds settled I was craving more and I ate so much I got a little sick but it was worth it at the time.  She also gave me a caramel corn recipe to accompany it and I will get that posted up here too.  You can cut down on the powdered sugar a little bit and it won't lose too much of the flavor.  You can half the recipe the first time you make it to see if you like it.  You really need a very sweet tooth for this candied popcorn.

Rule of thumb: a 1/2 cup of un-popped corn will produce about 12 cups of popped corn.

Apple Pie Popcorn

6 quarts of caramel corn (the crunchy kind, you can buy or make it)
24 oz white chocolate
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 Tbsp apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice

Stir powder sugar and spice together until fully blended.  Put 3 quarts of caramel corn into a large bowl, melt 12 oz of white chocolate in microwave until smooth stirring occasionally.  Pour onto caramel corn and mix well.  Then toss with 1/2 of the powder sugar mixture while chocolate is still wet.  Repeat with the other half of the ingredients.  Enjoy!!


  1. Did you say too sweet? My brain doesn't comprehend such a thing. Sounds like a good recipe for me :) Keep the recipes coming Debbie!

  3. Made it today. Supper Yummy, I ended up having to add a drop or 2 of cooking oil to the chocolate chips when I was melting them to keep them from clumping up. Other than that I stuck to the recipe.
    I'll save this recipe for holidays or parties where I want to have something unique. I love those mixed popcorn tins that you can get during the holidays, I'm excited that now i can make my own!
