Perk Up Your Popcorn with Toppings

January 18, 2013 | By | Comments (4)

popcornHappy National Popcorn Day! I’m a big fan of freshly popped corn—it’s tasty, crunchy, and filling. Bonus: It’s also a whole grain.

Lately, I’ve taken to preparing it the old school way, nixing the microwave varieties for plain kernels and a saucepan. And in lieu of the traditional “butter” flavor, I’ve been having a lot fun trying out various flavor combinations to spice things up.

Two of my favorites are our very own Peanut Butter Caramel Corn (it’ll satisfy a sweet tooth!) and Maple-Chile Popcorn (a tasty combo of sweet+spicy). These might take a little more time than simply adding some salt, but the results are 100 percent worth it!

Some other popcorn toppers to try:
– Peanut butter + dark chocolate drizzle
– Grated lemon rind
– Rosemary + olive oil
– Dark chocolate + ancho chile powder
– Parmesan cheese + thyme
– Garlic + crushed red pepper
