Happy 2016 err’body! I spent the holiday period eating way too much food and not doing half the things I planned to do. I did, however, get around to making some of this glorious vanilla studded Popcorn Brittle based on a recipe for Peanut Brittle from Sam Linsell’s recipe book Sweet (I wrote about it in my Gifts for Foodies List last year).
Did you know you get two different types of popcorn seeds? I didn’t, until I googled how to make Kettle Corn. You get the regular, sold at every shop in SA, ‘butterfly’ type and then you get the rounded beauties used for kettle corn which are described as ‘mushroom popcorn’. Since I have never seen this ‘mushroom popcorn’ at any grocery store in South Africa, I used pre made Kettle Corn from Woolworths. They have a whole range of flavours, and it costs about R20 for a 70g bag.
In this recipe I used the Himalayan Pink Salt & Vanilla Popcorn, but I think it would be equally delicious with the Cinnamon Sugar Coated Popcorn as well.
