Spice up your Oscars viewing party with these three amazing popcorn recipes!

S'mores Popcorn

10 cups popped popcorn (or one 3-oz. bag plain microwave popcorn, popped)
4 Tbsp. butter
One 10-oz. bag mini marshmallows, divided
1 sleeve graham crackers (9 crackers)
½ cup mini chocolate chips
Salt to taste

Break graham crackers into small pieces and toss with popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add ½ bag marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows melt and the mixture is smooth and shiny.
Drizzle marshmallow goo evenly over the popcorn in the bowl and toss to mix (use an oiled metal spoon to keep it from sticking).
Once the popcorn and cracker pieces are coated, add the rest of the mini marshmallows and chocolate chips and mix everything together. Sprinkle with salt to taste (don’t be shy).
The popcorn will be sticky and form clumps, but you can break these up a little bit after it cools. Also, s’mores clumps are delicious.

Garlic Sriracha Popcorn

4 Tablespoons Butter
1 Tablespoon Sriracha Sauce
2 Garlic cloves, finely minced

In a medium saucepan, add the butter and let it melt over medium heat. Next add the sriracha sauce and minced garlic. Stir until combined. Turn off the heat and let the flavors meld for 5 to 10 minutes. Pop the kernels while the butter is infusing. Next add the Sriracha Butter to the popcorn and shake really well to ensure popcorn is well covered.

Churro Popcorn

⅓ Cup popcorn kernels
¾ Cup cinnamon chips *found in the chocolate chip section
3½ Tablespoons of butter
½ Cup powdered sugar
¼ Cup sugar
1½ Teaspoon cinnamon

In a small bowl, stir the powdered sugar, sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
Place the popcorn kernels in a paper bag and fold a few times over. Microwave for 90-120 seconds or until popping slows down. Remove from bag and add a touch of salt, shake and pour into a large bowl.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and melt then the cinnamon chips. Stir to combine.
Pour the cinnamon chips over the popcorn and quickly, using a rubber spatula so as to not break the popcorn, fold until well coated. Add the powdered sugar mixture and fold again. Serve immediately. Store leftovers for one day in a zip lock bag.
