Pop ’til You Drop!

Some of the most fun we’ve had in the studio of late was a recent shoot we did for The Popcorn Board. We photographed  (and sampled!) a variety of pop-a-licious recipes for their website redesign. We shot popcorn snack mixes, popcorn balls, popcorn pie, popcorn bars, and more. It seemed like the popping never stopped! Our hands-down favorite recipe was the Popcorn Con Pesto. Warning: it’s highly addictive!

Popcorn Con Pesto
Makes about 5 quarts

5 quarts popped popcorn
1/2 cup  butter or margarine
1/2 cup pine nuts (optional)
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried basil leaves, crushed
1 teaspoon dried parsley, crushed
1 teaspoon garlic powder

– Put popped popcorn in a large bowl and keep warm.

– In small saucepan, melt the butter; add pine nuts, Parmesan, basil, parsley and garlic powder.

–  Stir to blend.

– Pour over popped popcorn, stirring well.

  4. Thanks for posting about the Popcorn Board. I would have never thought to look that up. Popcorn is my favorite quick snack and microwave popcorn is not allowed at my house.

  5. Thanks for stopping by – and adding me to your blog roll. You’re now on mine. This popcorn does look addictive.
