Butter and salt are all you really need to make popcorn good. However a few simple additions can be amazing. For instance, use a mixture of butter and coconut oil to drizzle on. Add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of honey to the butter an/or coconut oil mixture. Shake on any spice you like onto your popcorn, such as cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, allspice, or cardamom. You can even use savory spices like red pepper, ginger, wasabi, or paprika for a fiery bite. You can grate up any hard cheese and sprinkle it over the still hot popcorn. Or for an unbelievable treat, make HOMEMADE CARAMEL CORN. It may just be the best you’ve ever had.
