With days getting chillier, and all the rain we’ve been having these past weeks keeping us from going out as much, we’ve been cozying up at home. Which means, watching TV and eating popcorn. I’ve been wanting to try to make flavored popcorn for a while, particularly sweet popcorn, and although I still haven’t tried the first option that comes to mind: caramel popcorn, I tried this chocolate and pumpkin spice popcorn mix instead.
I got the idea to make this from a post I saw on Pinterest, which included cumin and cayenne pepper. I was sharing this with my daughter and I don’t think she would’ve liked that mix. Instead I tried making it with pumpkin pie spice, and to help make it a little sweeter I added some confectioner’s sugar to the mix. The flavor mix between the semi sweet chocolate (which hardens as it cools) with the spices and the slightly salted popcorn was really good. I really liked it, and will definitely make it again. It’s an easy and original treat for family movie night. Don’t forget to use natural flavored popcorn, without butter.
