More About This Recipe
Planning a viewing party?

Make it a popcorn party (cuz we all know that popcorn is the ultimate finger food for watching the fall TV premiere of Glee 90210 that highly intellectual new documentary your favorite show.  Invite some friends over for a fab spread of popcorn with DIY toppings.

Here’s how:

Step 1: Pop the Corn

The best way to pop corn for your popcorn party is to use a popcorn maker (I’m partial to air popper ones). You can prepare the popcorn maker to run (adding popcorn and oil if using a maker that calls for it) before the guests arrive. But wait until the party has started to actually run the machine. Popcorn only takes a few minutes to make and it’s kind of fun to see it happen.

Step 2: Scoop It

Lay out popcorn bags (you can find them online at stores like Etsy.com or sometimes in brick and mortar stores like World Market, Target and HomeGoods). If you can’t find the whimsical old-fashioned style bags, brown paper bags work well too. And they are super cost effective.

Step 3: Spray It (optional)

Now, if your guests are eating super hot, just popped popcorn, you can sometimes skip this step. But you might not want to. Giving the popcorn a little spray of cooking oil spray (olive oil spray works too!) helps the toppings adhere to it really well. And it doesn’t take a lot.

Step 4: Season It

You’ll want to set out a seasoning station for your popcorn loving guests. On the station include a variety of dry toppings for the popcorn such as:

Grated parmesan
Garlic salt and/or garlic powder
Paprika
Chile powder (such as chipotle powder or cayenne powder)
Dried basil, oregano and/or Italian seasonings
Truffle salt
Lavender salt
Sea salt
Hot cocoa mix
Cinnamon sugar

Guests can pick and choose, creating their own cool and delicious topping combination. It’s a lot of fun!
