Honey & Sriracha Popcorn: Your New Favourite Snack, Ever

The perfect combination of sweet and spicy

Honey and Sriracha Popcorn recipe |

Few are the things I love more than popcorn. It’s one of those snacks that I can eat so many different ways that I’ve guaranteed I will never tire of it! Plus it’s easy to make, inexpensive and assuming you don’t cover it in loads of butter and salt, it’s actually not an unhealthy treat!

My love affair with honey-sriracha popcorn we born in early autumn. I was out for dinner with Erica, Maija and Laureen at one of my favourite restaurants in Halifax: Tempo Food + Drink (fun fact: it's actually where I first hung out with Erica, MONTHS after having joined YMC as The Frenzied Fashionista!) While we chatted and waited for our [delicious]  appetizer and meals, our host brought us a little snack to hold us over: honey and sriracha popcorn. We were all intrigued by the idea, and it didn't take long for us to devour the bowl. Chatting makes you hungry.

But seriously: The perfect combination of sweet and spicy, it was absolutely delightful… and then I realized how easy it would be to recreate, tweak and make MINE. So I did it. And you can, too!

Honey & Sriracha Popcorn Recipe


Popcorn (1/2 cup kernels) OR approx.  16c. popped popcorn
1 teaspoon coconut oil (if popping popcorn)
2 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon Sriracha*
 Melt butter and honey in a microwave-safe bowl or cup. This should take 30-45 seconds.

 If popping your own popcorn, melt your oil and place popcorn kernels in machine or pan. Do what you do. (I use and love this popcorn maker!)

 When butter and honey are melted, add sriracha and stir.

 Drizzle butter mixture over popped popcorn.


*You can always add more sriracha for an added kick, or lessen it if you’re not a huge fan of spicy foods. Enjoy!
