Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Popcorn Mix Recipe

Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Popcorn Mix


Sriracha is a tangy, garlicky Thai chili sauce that has become a favourite with hot sauce fans and it really sings in this sweet-savoury movie-night snack.


  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • ½ cup hulled (green) pumpkin seeds
  • 12 cups freshly popped popcorn (microwave, air-popped or stovetop)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup Gay Lea Spreadables Butter, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Spread pecan halves and pumpkin seeds on a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 6 to 8 minutes or until fragrant; cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, melt Spreadables butter with hot sauce.
  3. Combine warm popcorn with pecan halves, pumpkin seeds, and cranberries in a large bowl. Drizzle with butter mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and re-toss to distribute salt evenly. Serve immediately.
