How to Make Glazed Doughnut Popcorn
You will need:
- 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
- 1/4 Cup Glaze (see recipe below)
- 6-8 Glazed Doughnut Holes
Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels. You don’t want to bite down on one of those! We pop our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on How to Make Perfect Popcorn here) but you can use air-popped or microwave. Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally. It is so nice to taste the salty under the sweet glaze. Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.
To make the Doughnut Glaze, pour 4 tablespoons of milk and 3 teaspoons of vanilla into a saucepan. On medium-low heat gently warm the milk and vanilla mixture stirring often. When the milk is warm but not boiling take off the heat. Then slowly add 1 1/2 cups of sifted powdered sugar and stir until smooth.
Slowly pour the Doughnut Glaze over the salted popcorn – you will not need it all. We used approximately 1/4 cup of the glaze. Gently fold the glaze in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered.
Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil or a silpat liner.
Chop up 7-8 Doughnut Holes.
Sprinkle in the Doughnut Holes with the glazed popcorn.
Allow the Glazed Doughnut Popcorn to cool. Add some sprinkles!
Our family loves this popcorn so it has never lasted longer than a day at our house. This popcorn definitely tastes best right after it is made but will keep for a few days in an airtight container. The popcorn is a little chewier the next day because the popcorn absorbs some of the moisture from the doughnut glaze but it still tastes good.
Glazed Doughnut Popcorn a fun and unique addition to our Sweet and Salty Popcorn series, we hope you like it!
