Sugar-N-Spice Popcorn

So, while most of us are resolving to eat better and maybe try to lose a few pounds... what's my first post of 2013??? Sugar-N-Spice Popcorn! Yep, it has butter-yep, it has sugar and yep, it could even have salt if you're so inclined... But I promise you an enjoyable, finger licking treat that will make even the worst movie worth watching! And really, how bad for you can it be... it is popcorn after all:@)

Sugar-N-Spice Popcorn-from Posed Perfection
4 quarts popped popcorn-1/2 C kernels using a hot air popper
5 Tblsp butter, melted
2-3 Tblsp sugar-I used 2 1/2
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Sprinkling of salt-optional
  1. Mix the butter, sugar and spices until the sugar begins to melt a bit.
  2. Pour over popcorn and mix very well.
  3. Dig in and love life!
Notes:
  • I popped my corn right onto a half sheet pan and melted the butter in a measuring cup with pour spout. This allowed me to slowly drizzle as much popcorn as possible. Then I mixed it on the sheet pan. Other than having to re-gather a couple stray pieces of popcorn this worked very well.
  • The nutmeg is amazing in this, if you have freshly grated that would be best.
Enjoy a (somewhat healthier) snack and have a happy day:@)

  4. Just made this! Delicious!! Nothing like a little butter and sugar to spice up that air popped corn. :) Wish I could come up with a bit healthier way to spice it up. Hope you're having a wonderful New Year's Day!!!

    1. I have a cheapie from Walmart, mine has to be 15 years old... The only reason I mention hot air is I notice popping with oil/fat makes smaller pieces.

  15. Another pin.
    I do love flavoring my popcorn, and there are so many variations! I like sweet/salty, so I'll give it a try!

  17. Happy New Year Lynn, I agree this is sounding delicious. My grands are coming to visit and snow ski. A perfect way to keep them happy and it is better than bread and butter. When we were kids and we told our mom we were hungry between meals she always said, " Have some bread and butter dear." Actually, it was good because she baked all the bread in our home. I wish I had some of that bread now. Smile.
