With the addition of almonds, chocolate chunks, pretzels and edible gold leaf flakes, an ordinary theater treat suddenly becomes a gourmet popcorn snack. Created by the Honestly Yum blog in celebration of the Oscars, this snack blends savory and sweet.
Rather than opting to make quick-and-easy microwave popcorn, this snack makes use of homemade stovetop popcorn. For a healthier twist, instead of using peanut oil or butter, Honestly Yum used ghee—a clarified butter that has been revered in India for hundreds of years as a powerful healer of wounds, free radical fighter and immune system booster. As well as bringing a ton of benefits to the body, the use of ghee also gives the popcorn a buttery taste without all of the grease. To top it all off, this recipe is rounded out by adding in some indulgent movie theater snacks for extra crunch.
