Well friends it is officially fall. Lets all bust out the pumpkins and fall wreaths and start snacking on this awesome popcorn! I'm totally a snacker, sometimes I wonder if I would loose weight if I worked outside the home and didn't pass through my kitchen a million times a day, my guess is probably. It helps to have lower calorie options when snacking, especially since I like to pile on more calories on top of what the base of the snack already is. ;) Skinnygirl came out with a new line of popcorn this month with two flavors- butter sea salt and lime & salt. I new I would love the butter and sea salt, because its a standard but I was surprised at how flavorful the Lime version is and how much I liked it. To make it even better I paired the lime & salt with a spiced mexican chocolate sauce I made and its a delicious combo! Keep reading for the recipe.
Lets talk about combos for second. Clearly this popcorn is good enough to eat by itself, but if you are having a party or really have a hankering for something sweet, having a popcorn snack with toppings will hit the spot, I promise! If you've been reading my blog for any time at all you know that i'm a sucker for this caramel sauce recipe and I've been putting it on everything from apple pie to banana spring rolls, so I'm sure it is no surprise that I'm drizzling it on this skinnygirl butter popcorn! One of my favorite combos is the butter popcorn with candy corn, peanuts, mini Reese's pieces and then drizzled with caramel sauce. oh man. yum.
If you are a chocolate lover you're going to be all over this next combo. Top the butter sea salt Skinnygirl popcorn with mini chocolate chips, toffee bits and drizzle with my spiced mexican chocolate sauce below. Another big yummmmm....
When I was making these fun combinations and imagining using this whole set up at a party I thought it would be great for a Halloween party! I made the food labels that you see in the photo below for you to download and print for free. Such a fun and helpful addition to any buffet table so that people know what they are choosing from. You can download them HERE.
If I were serving this at a party on halloween night, which I think would be a great idea I would have brown paper bags and parents could make their combos and then carry it with them as they supervise kids going door to door for trick or treating.
You can find my favorite caramel sauce recipe here.
