Honey Butter Popcorn

I beg your pardon for that really awful iPhone picture of this delightful treat, but I really have to blame it on the deliciousness of the recipe itself, because once I tasted this yummy stuff, I wasn't getting off the sofa to get the camera. No way. I was getting ready to watch Cinderella Man last night -- one of my favorite flicks -- when I decided I needed a bowl of this popcorn I had linked to on Pinterest last week. Because I am doing this trial of wheat-free diet, I have been feeling rather sorry for myself about all the yummy things I am missing out on. Once I realized that this was wheat-free (and totally a treat!) I had to do it. And once I tasted it, I wasn't moving from the sofa until the bowl was finished. Yes, I ate the whole thing.

Please do go the extra step in making the popcorn yourself. No micro popcorn. That stuff is like poison. Yuck. Just a tablespoon of crisco in the bottom of a pot and a single layer of kernels, a lid, and a high fire. Pretty soon, pop, pop, pop.

Then add this delicious honey butter and you have created a decadent and delightful treat. I modified the recipe just slightly because I thought I could make it better. Ha!

I love Cinderella Man, too! Great movie. This popcorn sounds so yummy! So, simple, too. I'll have to try it soon during one of our Doctor nights…that's Doctor Who, of course. ;) Thanks, Barbara!

I hope you enjoy! I don't do Dr. Who but I'm anxious for Downton to return!
