This was a really easy recipe for popcorn and delicious. But I made the popcorn in a saucepan. Use a sizeable pan cover the bottom with oil (one with a high smoke point). Put one piece of corn in the pan with a lid on, heat the oil until the corn pops then take off the heat and add the rest of the corn straight away. Replace the lid and pop back on a low heat and wait until all the corn has popped. Place into a bowl and pour sauce over the popcorn and stir.

Just made this, sooo good. Definitely our new weekend treat.
I also made the popcorn in a pan, just followed the instructions on the back of the popcorn packet.

Oh boy ~ this is GOOOOD! I don't recommend that you make it though as you will be in danger of eating the lot all by yourself!! :oD
Quick, simple and tasty (but very sweet and SOOO bad for you!).

I made a huge bowl of this for six hungry teenage boys who were watching a movie - it went down a treat. They even asked for more. I don't have a microwave, so I made the popcorn in a non-stick shallow pan with a lid of course!! It took a lot longer to cook, but was just as nice.
