If you gearing up to enjoy the red carpet at 6pm on E and/or 7 pm on ABC, or the awards on ABC at 8:30pm in this Sunday’s 88th Academy Awards, you might want to whip up a batch of this Bourbon Caramel Popcorn we found when stalking local food blog Feast + West.

As Feast + West food blogger Susannah Brinkley says, popcorn and movies do go together. But since the Oscars is no average movie night, your popcorn needs to be swoon-worthy as well. We’ve posted about dressed up popcorn HERE (spicy caramel bacon popcorn anyone?), and Susannah has a link to her blogroll popcorn picks in her post as well. But the red carpet calls for a Black Tie, Sophisticated, Glammed up pop, and we feel this one hits the spot.

The recipe isn’t too difficult and the results will def impress.
