New Takes on Movie Night Popcorn

We LOVE watching movies (and TV)!  I guess that's good since we both work in the entertainment industry.  It's actually a pretty constant battle for us to avoid acquiring too many more shows.  Ain'tnobodygottimeforthat!

What goes better with a movie night than some yummy popcorn!?  I inherited my hubby's air pop machine, and let me tell you, that puppy gets a lot of use in our house!  Also, I recently found these cute paper popcorn boxes at the grocery, which make a movie night even more fun.

My hands-down favorite popcorn is straight-up movie style, with salt and real melted butter.  Mmmm...  But, I do love to try different variations on an old favorite.  So check out this list of fun twists on traditional popcorn:

  • Parker's Hot Corn: salt, butter, cayenne pepper, grated parmesan (whew, it's spicy!)
  • Asian Sesame: sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, sriracha, salt, dash of lime

  • S'mores: see a recipe HERE
  •  Sticky  Marshmallow: butter, brown sugar, melted marshmallows, YUM!
  • Ranch: just use a Ranch dry seasoning packet or a product like THIS
  • Dill: buy a popcorn seasoning or THIS recipe
