At first glance, this crunchy snack looks like just a normal bowl of popcorn. I can assure you, though, that this is not your every day popcorn. It has something very special drizzled on top and it is called honeyscotch.  Ever heard of it? This honeyscotch popcorn is an old family recipe that comes from Matt’s grandma.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s old, handwritten recipes. I have several of our favorite family recipes framed and hanging in our kitchen, and this honeyscotch popcorn is one of them. Not only is it handwritten by Matt’s grandma, but it says “To Matthew” on the front. A recipe especially for him.

Isn’t is special? And really, who writes like this anymore? It’s beautiful. I wish I hand that gorgeous handwriting.

Although Matt doesn’t really remember having this popcorn at his grandma’s house, it was a recipe that she evidently wanted Matt to have. And so it hangs in a special spot in our kitchen.

So what is honeyscotch popcorn?

Well, first get yourself some popcorn. Pop it yourself with an air popper, use a Whirley-Pop, or there’s always microwave popcorn, too!

For the drizzle, mix together 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Warm it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to get it all nice and drizzly. Pour this mixture over 3 cups of popcorn, shake to coat and you’re ready to eat this simple snack.

I love how light this snack is and that it is sweetened with honey. Fresh. Healthy. And full of grandma love.

That’s so cool, Julie! I love old handwritten recipe cards! I have a lot that my great-grandma made out. They’re in such rough shape, but that’s part of the fun of it! Why did I never think of honey on popcorn? It’s such a great idea!! It kind of reminds me kettle corn (which I’m addicted to!!!). I’ll have to try this. Thanks for sharing!
