Game day just got better with our new favorite snack recipe--buffalo wings popcorn! 

My husband and I enjoy spending time together and going grocery shopping for our traditional game day staples (e.g. fries, cheese, beer, vegetables and ranch, chicken wings, etc). A few weeks ago, while we were walking around the deli at Walmart, the smell of buffalo wings was so strong and it smelled so tasty I just had to have some buffalo chicken wings. 

When I went up to the counter to order some wings, Adam grabbed me by the shoulder and stopped me when he said, "wait, I have an idea!" 

He bent down and began digging through our grocery cart until he finally held up a single box of popcorn. That was when he said it would be tasty to make buffalo wing flavored popcorn. Laughing at first at how silly it sounded, imaging chunks of chicken wings inside a bowl of popcorn I told him it sounded like a good idea but that it wouldn't taste right. After a few minutes of Adam explaining his idea and what ingredients he'd use, that's when the idea of my husband's eureka moment finally started to settle in. We hurried around the store finding everything we needed, and then went straight to the checkout and headed home. Game day arrived just a few days later, and lo and behold, Adam's idea became our new favorite game day snack!

Buffalo Wings Popcorn

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (F). 
  2. Prepare the Orville Redenbacher® popcorn and set aside. 
  3. Heat buffalo hot sauce, water, and crushed red pepper in a small stovetop pot and bring it to a boil.
  4. Turn down to a medium-hot heat and add the butter. Mix well. 
  5. Once the butter is completely melted, pour the mixture over the prepared popcorn. Work quickly and toss the popcorn in the buffalo mixture completely. 
  6. Pour the popcorn onto a baking sheet, spread it out, and bake it in the oven at 325 degrees (F) for 25-30 minutes (flip the popcorn once about halfway through).
  7. Serve fresh and enjoy!

Orville Redenbacher® is an essential for game day (especially if you're hosting a party for the big game this year!) Whether you prefer your popcorn a little sweet, spicy, or just plain buttery, make sure to whip up a big bowl of popcorn for your game day fanatics to enjoy!
