PUMPKIN SPICE POPCORN – A FALL MUST

Are you a popcorn fan?  A pumpkin spice fan? A snack fan?  If you answered yes to any of  these question you have to try this Pumpkin Spice Popcorn!!  NOW!!!

NOT TOO PUMPKIN-Y … I PROMISE

I know that it says pumpkin spice in the title but don’t worry it is not too much.  There is a just a hint of spice paired with the sweetness of of the brown sugar and the richness of the butter.  I am seriously trying to think of other things I use this combo on… so stay tuned.

With the addition of brown sugar it really mellows the pumpkin spice and makes this a perfect little hint of fall in each bite.

SWEET AND SALTY POPCORN

The combo of the salted popcorn with the brown sugar pumpkin spice butter makes this the perfect sweet and salty combo.  

For a quick treat you can just pour the butter mixture over the popcorn and eat right away, but if you can stand putting it into the oven for about 5 minutes it is AMAZING!  The little bit of time in the oven gives it an almost caramel corn feel, amping up the brown sugar butter mixture.  You could also add in pretzels, before you drizzle the butter for an extra bit of salty yum.  For more sweet throw in some M&M’s or drizzle melted chocolate over the top after you bake the popcorn.  Even better… DO IT ALL!

If you want to give this popcorn away for a fun treat for someone else I highly recommend baking it. It makes the butter adhere to the popcorn and it will keep the popcorn crunchier over time.  I made this for Boo Bags and it turned out so cute (see below).
