Looking for ways to heat up your movie date night? Here are a few tactics to keep them asking for more! These popcorn recipes will certainly do the trick.

1. Marshmallow

Melt ½ cup of butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in 12 big marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Pour the mix over your popcorn and let it cool for a couple of minutes. You can even drizzle chocolate sauce overtop and add some M&Ms to the mix!

2. Peanut Butter

Mix ½ cup of honey and ½ cup of sugar into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 2 minutes, take it off the heat, and add ½ cup of peanut butter. Stir until the peanut butter has melted and then stir in ½ teaspoon of vanilla. Pour this tasty mixture over your popcorn, stir, and let it cool for 10 minutes.

3. Cinnamon Sugar

Combine 2 teaspoons of sugar and ¼ teaspoon of ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and pour it over the popcorn., then sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture and toss to coat.

4. Cookies and Cream

In a microwavable bowl, combine 1 bag of white chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir until melted. Next, put 12 Oreo cookies in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Lay out the popcorn onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper and pour the melted chocolate overtop with the crushed Oreo. Spread out with spatula until the popcorn is completely covered. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens, break into pieces and enjoy!
