Popcorn Plus!

Popcorn Plus!

Plain popcorn is actually a healthy treat, but kinda boring on its own. By home-making your own delicious toppings you can make them all natural, and add a kick of flavor without all the chemicals and preservatives found in store-bought flavorings.

Ranch Mix

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk

Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a container that has a lid. Add popcorn to the container, and then secure the lid. Shake well, and serve in a bowl.

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Melt the butter and add the sugar and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly in a bowl, then pour over popped popcorn. Yum!

Cajun Popcorn

  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

Thoroughly mix all ingredients in a container with a secure lid. Add popcorn to the container, then secure the lid and shake well. Be sure to wash your hands after handling cayenne pepper, and avoid contact with the eyes.
