Spice up plain popcorn with nutmeg, pepper and cayenne. Replace butter with coconut oil and make a few batches at once-- the crowd will be coming back for more. This recipe for the spice mix will make multiple batches and lasts for a few weeks when sealed in an airtight container.
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 tbsp. smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
For the Popcorn
- 1 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tbsp. Vita Coco Coconut Oil, for popping
- 3 tbsp. Vita Coco Coconut Oil, for coating (melted)
In a medium sized pan with a fitted lid, heat Vita Coco Coconut Oil over medium heat.
Add kernels and swirl to coat. Place lid on and shaking occasionally. Cook until kernels stop popping.
Transfer popcorn to a bowl and drizzle with the melted Vita Coco Coconut Oil, then season with the spice blend to taste.
