Pumpkin Spice Popcorn

September 13, 2017

Good Wednesday morning! I have been excited to share this with y'all since last Wednesday. I knew as soon as husband and I made it, that it was most certainly worth sharing here. If you're anything like me, then we share a big kind of love for sweets. On this particular afternoon, it was rainy, overcast, and quite chilly. Husband had returned from a work trip, and baby girl was asleep (until we woke her up with the noise from the air popper #rookiemistake). Basically, it was the perfect afternoon for a little popcorn + cocoa + a fire. And that's exactly what we did. But, instead of making a salty popcorn, we spiced things up a bit (see what I did there?) and made a more fall-festive rendition of our beloved air-popped popcorn. 

This recipe is SO simple, and only calls for five ingredients. I do recommend using an air popper because there is nothing like it when it comes to popcorn. If you have a party to host or an afternoon to binge on Netflix, this is your snack from now through forever.

  • What You'll Need
    • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels (we used white)
    • 4 TBSP salted butter
    • 2 TBSP granulated sugar
    • 1 TSP cinnamon
    • 1/2 TSP pumpkin pie spice
  • What You'll Do
    • Pop the kernels in the air popper and set aside.
    • In a saucepan (or microwave), melt the butter.
    • While the butter is melting, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
    • Drizzle the butter over the popcorn, tossing well to cover it evenly. 
    • Sprinkle the sugar + spice mix, again tossing well until the popcorn is covered evenly.
    • Enjoy with hot cocoa or even sparkling apple cider, preferably while fireside!

Grab a blanket and your person for a cuddled up afternoon or evening on the couch by the fire. The perfect movie is also required!
