This recipe makes around 13-15 cups of delicious Hibiscus Popcorn.  While not quite as crunchy or completely coated as the original Hibiscus popcorn recipe, it’s still fruity and delicious!


  • Nonstick Vegetable Spray
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels (makes 1315 cups popped)
  • 1/2 cup plant based margarine (1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hibiscus powder.


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Cover a large sheet pan with foil.  Spray with nonstick spray.  Set aside.
  3. Spray a large bowl with nonstick vegetable spray.  Air pop the kernels into the prepared bowl.  Set aside.
  4. In a small 3 quart saucepan, combine the sugar, margarine and hibiscus powder.  Cook over medium/low heat until the margarine and sugar are melted, stirring constantly with a heat resistant spatula.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Pour the hibiscus syrup over the popcorn.  Use two forks to toss and completely coat the popcorn.
  7. Transfer the popcorn to the prepared pan.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Cool completely then break into small pieces.


This recipe is based upon the Sweet Popcorn Glaze recipe by Jen’s Favorite Cookies.
