how long does this popcorn stay good for? Can I make it ahead of time?
This popcorn is so gooey and soft, and full off all sorts of additions, that it stays pretty well sealed and covered.
However, just like any other popcorn, it can get a little soft and soggy. We recommend making and serving this the same day you made it.
However, it does keep quite nice in an airtight container for up to 5 to 7 days.
could I use microwave popcorn to make this recipe?
For this recipe, we used a popcorn popper, and the popcorn had no seasoning or flavor on it. It was just plain popped, popcorn kernels.
However, you could easily make this recipe using microwave popcorn. We recommend using plain popcorn (not butter or kettle) because these flavors and additions to the popcorn, tend to soften it a little faster, than plain popcorn would. This popcorn tastes best when it is made with fresh and crisp popcorn.
We recommend using about 2 – 2 1/2 bags (or packages) of regular flavored, microwave popcorn. They make about 6-8 cups of popcorn, which is perfect for this recipe.
Now the trick is just not burning the popcorn while microwaving it…
