Irresistible Pumpkin Spice Popcorn (Speculaas Popcorn)
My Pumpkin Spice Popcorn recipe came about because I love Speculaas. The Dutch Speculaas flavour is similar to American Pumpkin Pie Spice flavour. Since Speculaas Spice Mix isn’t widely available I decided to name the English version of my popcorn recipe Pumpkin Spice Popcorn instead of Speculaas Popcorn. Just like pumpkin spice, anything speculaas flavoured starts to come up in the fall and lasts throughout the winter. Now that fall has started I was craving for something with this flavour. I didn’t plan on actually making anything but once I got the idea in my head for Pumpkin Spice Popcorn I just had to make it! I was so eager to make this I didn’t take the time to setup my lighting properly to make my step-by-step photo’s so please excuse the bad lighting. If you want to make this recipe with Speculaas Spice Mix (like I intended the recipe to be) check out my Speculaas Spice Mix recipe to make your own mix.
Quick and Easy Pumpkin Spice Popcorn (Speculaas Popcorn)
I also forgot to take a picture of my ingredients, but you can see most of them in the saucepan here.
In a saucepan add butter, sugar, water, a little bit of vanilla extract, salt and pumpkin pie spice (or Speculaas Spice). I’ve written down the amounts needed in the recipe below but this recipe really is something you can easily tweak to your liking, if you like a stronger speculaas / pumpkin spice flavour, just add a little more pumpkin pie spice (or Speculaas Spice). Be creative 😀
Let the mixture cook on a low heat till all the sugar is dissolved.
Put your popcorn in a bowl and pour the mixture over your popped popcorn.
Using a spoon, stir the mixture into the popcorn till all of the popcorn is fully coated.
Pour the coated popcorn on a lined baking tray.
Spread out the popcorn evenly and pop the baking tray into the oven.
Stir the popcorn every few minutes.
Take the popcorn out of the oven and let cool, stir every few minutes.
You’ll end up with a gorgeous looking delicious bowl of crispy Pumpkin Spice Popcorn (Speculaas Popcorn). I really like this fall and winter version of a classic popcorn dish. Serve it for Thanksgiving or package it and give it away as a Halloween treat! Let me know if you like it.
