18 Easy Homemade Popcorn Recipes To Hyggefy Your Movie Night

What’s crispy, tasty and your best companion on movie nights? Popcorn! It’s easy to make and if you’re anything like me, you can’t stop eating once there’s a whole bowl in front of you. Since it’s National Popcorn Day today, I thought it would be nice to celebrate by sharing a few recipes for spicing or sweetening up your popcorn. Below I’ve listed 9 sweet and 9 savoury variations on this ultimate party snack.

But first…how to make popcorn? Let’s go about it the hygge way: homemade. You have different options. You can use your stove, your microwave or your bbq/campfire.

Stove popcorn
  1. Put some veggie oil in a pan with one kernel (1 tsp of oil per 2 tsps of kernels).
  2. Heat the oil and wait until the kernel pops.
  3. Put the rest of the kernels in.
  4. Let it pop until there’s more than 2-3 seconds between pops.
  5. Season with your favourite flavour (see suggestions below).
Microwave popcorn (homemade & healthy)
  1. Put some kernels in a brown paper bag and fold the edge a few times.
  2. Put the bag in the microwave and put it on high.
  3. Let it pop until there’s more than 2-3 seconds between pops.
  4. Get the bag out and season with your favourite flavour (see suggestions below).
On the BBQ/campfire
  1. Get your fire going
  2. Put an aluminium dish on the rack.
  3. Put some veggie oil in.
  4. Put the kernels in.
  5. Cover the dish with aluminium foil.
  6. Wait until the popping stops.
  7. Season with your favourite flavour.

Characteristics of a Hygge Spot

We realize that the definition of a hygge place may vary slightly from person to person. However, as a guideline we use the following characteristics that are generally considered hygge.

Basic lighting
Basic lighting is the light you turn on when you enter the space. The light spreads evenly and doesn’t create too much effect or contrast. Think ceiling lamps, hanging lamps and build-in spots.


Atmospheric lighting
Atmospheric lighting is for creating…atmosphere. It’s a soft, indirect light that spreads throughout the space. This is called diffused light. Use different heights of atmospheric lighting for optimal results, for example table lamps, floor lamps and wall lamps.


Functional lighting
Functional lighting is focused light that enables you to see what you’re doing. It’s the light above your dinner table, the reading lamp next to your lazy chair and the spots above your kitchen sink.


Accent lighting
Accent lighting is used to single out a specific object or place and focus attention on it. This could be a painting or an architectonic detail.


Decorative lighting
Decorative lighting is about the esthetics of the armature itself. Lighting the space is not its purpose; it’s just there for the effect. Most of these light sources have little light output and stand out because of their appearance. Fireplaces and candles are also decorative lighting.

Hygge is the art of creating warmth, coziness and contentment in any given moment.

Hygge Hytte  means 'cozy cottage', a place where you can unwind and recharge.
