Sweet & salty curry and chocolate peanut popcorn

You may have recognized in our Instagram Stories, that we prepared our very first dessert buffet for a wedding this year. We served chocolate mousse, fruity yogurt cremes, and mini donuts. What an exciting day! But the best part of it – everything worked out really good!

But we got very positive feedback about our midnight snack too. We served two kinds of popcorn this night and were asked for the recipes permanently. On the one hand we served a savory curry popcorn with a pinch of chili, and on the other hand, we served a sweet'n'salty chocolate popcorn with peanuts. Both were amazing, especially in combination. But the best part of it was the preparation: in the morning we prepared the popcorn, so we only had to bake the popcorn for 10 minutes in the evening to turn crunchy and lukewarm again. So 90% of the work was done before the wedding even started. We could enjoy the fun day and also serve crunchy and warm popcorn for midnight. Sound like a win-win situation, right?
