Popcorn Pie

This is a ridiculously sugary dessert, but it’s lots of fun for a special treat.  Be warned – it’s VERY chewy!

Popcorn pie

Popcorn Pie (Makes one pie)

One ready-made sweet pastry case
200g plain popped popcorn
200g caster sugar
50ml double cream
5 tbsp butter at room temperature

1. For the caramel, place the sugar and water in a pan and swirl to combine.  Bring the mixture to the boil.

2. When the mixture is a golden brown caramel colour, remove from the heat and carefully stir in the cream. It will bubble up but just keep stirring.  When the cream is mixed in, stir in the butter.  Set aside and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

3. Pour the popcorn into the caramel and mix well. Pour this mixture into the pastry case and spread out evenly. Allow the caramel to set before carefully cutting onto portions to serve.  Serve with cream.
