Sweet 'n Spicy Popcorn



My birthday this year falls on Oscar Night.  Since we are celebrating with the family on the night before, I'll be watching the show by myself, as my hubby doesn't really care for it. For my easy tray scape, I'm using my comfy nightie as the backdrop, as I like to DRESS for the occasion!! LOL!!
 A $ Tree  popcorn bag is filled with some pretty tulips (a glass inside is holding the water) and a popcorn bowl,  from Ross holds the delicious flavored popcorn.  To toast the winners, I'm using my wedding crystal with my favorite diet Vernor's Ginger Ale.


I've been doing "The Zone" diet for over thirteen years now. One of my favorite snacks is popcorn (2 cups) and a stick of part-skim string cheese. I never get tired of it!  Recently, bloggy buddy,  Lynn at Happier than a Pig in Mud posted this popcorn recipe.  I knew right away that I wanted to try it.  Lynn got the recipe from another bloggy buddy,  Nici, at Posed Perfection.  It's really a yummy treat and too good to not share!



I made half of the recipe, which is perfect for two people. I also used my microwave popper, which makes a great small batch. After the other ingredients are melted together, they can be poured right into the microwave popper bowl, cover the lid and shake.

Cheers to the winners!

Sweet 'n Spicy Popcorn


2 quarts popped popcorn, 1/4 cup in my microwave popper
2 1/2  T. butter
1- 1 1/2 T. sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg, I used freshly grated
Sprinkling of salt, I used Himalayan sea salt


Melt the butter and then add the sugar and spices.  Stir until the sugar is melted. 

Pour over the popcorn and sprinkle with salt.  Mix well and enjoy!!

  8. Now that sounds like some awesome popcorn. I make mine in a brown paper bag, with some olive oil, a packet of sweetner and some salt.. in the microwave! But i think I would love the flavorings in this one.. Cute cute tray. I say a cozy set of pj's or gown makes it a perfectly legit "dress up".. Cute idea to put a jar in the popcorn bag! xo marlis

  21. Happy Birthday, young lady! Since you're turning 21, I'm surprised you're not toasting with champagne instead of ginger ale! ;-) I really like the tulips in the popcorn bag! That's pretty neat! I'm a popcorn fanatic. I used to eat it almost every night for like 40 years. (My family LOVES popcorn, and my Dad would cook it up nightly for watching TV!) I have cut that back to maybe a couple of times a week now. I'll give this version a try! Enjoy your birthday, enjoy the Oscars, and enjoy being legal age now! ;-)
