With Fall activities in full swing, we find ourselves outside a lot with sports and social gatherings. As my family is obsessed with everything pumpkin right now, I came up with this delicious popcorn combination which tastes like a lighter version of pumpkin pie!

The salty sweet popcorn mix is seasonally tasty with real pumpkin, agave, cinnamon and vanilla.  Hefty® Slider Bags are perfect for snacks on the go like this as the bags are easily resealable and keep everything fresh. They are also easy to customize for party snacks!

 

I shopped for my Hefty® Slider Bags at Walmart, and you can too! Hefty® Slider Bags  cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags, when comparing the same type of bag (freezer/storage) and size (quart/gallon) of the closest price point. They are also super strong thanks to the MaxLock® track design! 

You Will Need:

  • 2 Bags of Microwave Popcorn – I recommend Light Butter Flavor
  • 2 tablespoons agave or honey
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • Fall colored sprinkles (optional)
  • Candy Corn (optional)

 

Yum

How To Prepare:

Pop the microwave popcorn bags per instructions on the bag. 

Allow to cool. Put on bag of popped popcorn in a large glass bowl. Take the other bag of popcorn and spread out on top of a roasting pan lined with parchment paper. 

In a small saucepan, combine the oil, agave syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin puree and cinnamon.

Cook over medium heat for a minute or two, stirring until all the ingredients are combined and mixture is slightly bubbling.

Drizzle the pumpkin mixture over the popcorn on the pan and stir until coated. 

Bake for 5 minutes at 325 degrees and stir at least once. When you pull the flavored pumpkin popcorn out of the oven, add sprinkles and toss. Allow to cool.

Mix the regular popcorn with the cooled flavored popcorn and serve or package up in Hefty® Slider Bags.

Add some candy corn if you want to make it even more festive!
