Lucky Maple Popcorn

Lucky Maple Popcorn

Did you know that October is popcorn month?! With our love of popcorn, we think that is cause for a celebration.

Lucky spice with its hit of heat makes for a slightly addictive combination with maple syrup. We think you will love it!

INGREDIENTS

1/3 Cup Oil (either vegetable or avocado oil)

3/4 Cup Uncooked popcorn kernels

2 tsp Lucky Spice

½ Cup butter

⅓ Cup Maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt

*Optional ½ Cup Pecans (chopped up well to nearly a crumble)

  1. Warm oven to 250º.
  2. On the stovetop, using a 4-quart pot (with a lid) heat the oil for the popcorn to a medium-high heat.
  3. Add popcorn and cover with the lid.  Once the popping starts to slow down, remove the pot from the heat.
  4. Empty popcorn into a large bowl
  5. While popcorn is popping, in a small saucepan add butter, sugar, maple syrup, salt and Lucky Spice. Bring to a boil then let simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Drizzle butter and sugar mixture over popped corn and toss as if it were a salad, to coat popcorn evenly. * Optional – Sprinkle nuts over top and toss some more.
  7. Spread coated popcorn on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Turn the oven heat off and allow popcorn to cool in the oven for 20 minutes.
