5 Drool-Worthy Popcorn Dessert Recipes You Haven’t Tried

Popcorn lovers unite! Air popped popcorn is one of my all time favorite snacks. It’s perfect for the days where you feel like eating the entire house for no reason. It has health benefits and is low in fat, calories, and sugar. I also love how diverse popcorn is. You can customize it to anything you’re craving. Popcorn is so boring by itself (not really) and sometimes it’s necessary to dress it up.

I wanted to share some of my favorite popcorn dessert combos, for the days when your sweet tooth has fully taken over.

Strawberry cheesecake popcorn

I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake, but I love cheesecake flavored food. I’m more of a strawberry shortcake kind of gal. But, when I need my fix, I just dress up my popcorn. It’s much healthier than grabbing a slice of cheesecake.

Strawberry Cheesecake Popcorn:
*white chocolate chips
*1/2 cup dried strawberries (freezer dried or dehydrated)
*crumbled gram crackers (or teddy grahams)
*popcorn
Banana bread popcorn

Banana bread is one of my favorite foods. I currently have bananas getting extra brown for the loaf I’m going to make later.

Banana Bread Popcorn:
*1 tsp allspice
*2 tbsps chopped walnuts
*1/4 cup of banana chips
*2 cups air popped popcorn
sometimes I add dark chocolate chips

S'mores popcorn

Who doesn’t love s’mores? Sometimes, when I’m craving a s’more I melt chocolate chips and marshmallows on a graham cracker in the microwave. The problem with that is stopping at just one. I like popcorn because it takes longer to eat and it fills me up more.

S’more popcorn:
*1/4 cup mini marshmallows
*2 tbsps chocolate chips
*1/4 cup chopped graham crackers (or teddy grahams)

Frosted cinnamon roll popcorn
Now, this one is my all time favorite. It’s actually funny because I’m allergic to cinnamon when it touches my skin, but I can still eat it. I have to be very careful when I’m working with cinnamon otherwise my face blows up like a balloon. Okay, that wasn’t funny at all. I love love love cinnamon rolls! This recipe will make your fingers sticky, but that’s the beauty of soap and water.

Cinnamon Roll Popcorn:
*1 tsp ground cinnamon
*1 tbsp vanilla frosting (melted in the microwave and drizzled over the popcorn, place in refrigerator to dry)
*2 cups air popped popcorn

Apple pie popcorn
If you haven’t noticed already, I am also a huge apple pie fan. I have my grandpa to thank for that. I love apple pie oatmeal, apple pie muffins, and apple pie popcorn!

Apple Pie Popcorn:
*2 tbsps cinnamon chips
*1 tsp apple pie spice
*1/4 cup apple chips
*2 cups air popped popcorn
