This is one of our favorite fall snacks. Hope you enjoy it!
recipe adapted from Perry’s Plate
6 (ish) cups popped popcorn (use more or less as desired)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted (make sure it’s salted! or even extra-salted. yum.)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Melt the butter, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice in the microwave. You can do this just until melted, but I’ve found that if I do a few more 20 second bursts and stir in between, the sugar melts better.
Drizzle the butter mixture over the popcorn a little at a time, stirring gently as you go.
Let the popcorn sit for a bit (maybe 10-20 minutes?) to let the sugared butter cool. (Otherwise it will be really tacky on your fingers. After it cools it’s less tacky and the popcorn seems crunchier.)
