Snack time .
Just got awesome .
So today we're talking about how to flavor your own homemade popcorn .
Now , if you missed my last video , I showed you three ways to make popcorn at home .
It's a little something for everyone over there .
So if you don't know how to make your own popcorn and you miss that video , then make sure that you check that out as well .
So you'll know how to make the popcorn to start off with .
Ok , so once you have your popcorn , then we're gonna be flavoring it ourselves .
So I've got three little bowls here , single serving bowls with some popcorn in them .
And the reason that I decided to do it this way is because a lot of times we think about , um , you know , flavoring like a big bowl of popcorn all the same , but honestly , everyone might not want the same flavors .
Uh , they might be feeling a little something different .
So I think it's kind of a cool idea to almost like a little popcorn bar .
You can have , everyone can have their own bowl , but you can have like little stations or just everything out there where people can get creative and make it their own .
So think about that , it could be a fun option .
So today we're just doing like a single portion .
First one we're gonna start off with is just your traditional traditional butter and salt .
Now , this is one that , I mean , is pretty self-explanatory , but I had to include it because it's the traditional , right ?
So I just got some melted butter here real simple .
I'm just gonna drizzle some over the top .
And the thing is you have to have this little bit of oil in here because that's what is gonna help make the salt stick .
So I'm gonna go with my little salt piggy pig here , Sprinkle some salt over top and there really aren't any exact measurements with this because it depends on how much popcorn you're doing and also how much you like .
So once you've got your flavoring on there , you can just kind of mix it up .
You can taste as you go and see if that's right for you .
If you like a little more .
And I mean , I always say be more on the cautious side because you can always add more , but you can't take it out once you put it in there , I guess you could add more popcorn , but that might get a little complicated .
So that's just the butter and salt .
Super yummy tastes just like movie theater popcorn except 100 times better because it's made with real ingredients .
And it doesn't have that like stale , been there forever kind of vibe going on .
So now that I've got butter on my hands , let's just keep going .
The next one we're gonna do is kind of a spicy , kind of , I guess like almost the Mexican Tex Mex kind of inspired one .
So for this one , we're gonna use the butter again because again , you need some sort of like oil to bind everything .
So just drizzling a little bit of butter on there .
And then I selected three spices that I think are great flavors that most people like .
So first is chili powder .
So we're gonna use the most of this so be kind of liberal with it .
Um Put some chili powder in there next up I have is garlic powder .
Now you wanna be careful with this because you can do too much and it will be super garlicky , which I mean you might like that but other people might not be your biggest fan .
And then the last which you need to even go lighter on is cayenne this stuff you really don't need much at all .
Do a little dash and then the same thing just mix that all up and same with before , you know , you can always add more later .
So taste as you go and you know , it's kind of a little messy but that's also kind of what makes it fun .
And this would be great for kids as long as you give them a little guidance , you don't want , you know , your four year old to put like the whole thing in Cayenne and then burn their mouth up or anything like that .
But , you know , if you give them some guidance to kind of help them measure things out , um and taste as they go , then I think this would be a really fun thing for kids as well .
So that's pretty good .
So that is the kind of , I guess I should have a name for this , but we'll just call it the Chipotle one .
How about that chili powder ?
I don't know , it doesn't really have Chipotle peppers in it , but it seem to be the name that goes along with stuff like that .
So next up , I'm gonna use my other hand .
So we don't get this one messed up .
Now this one is gonna be a sweet option .
So I'm gonna use butter again .
But you could also use coconut oil here would be really great because that kind of coconut flavor goes really great with sweet things .
So we've got our butter and the next thing we're gonna add is a little drizzle of honey for sweetness .
So you're just gonna drizzle this on and try to get as thin of a like little line or stream of honey as possible because you don't want it to get too gloopy because you could get like big chunks of honey in one spot .
So then you've got that and then the spice we're gonna use is some cinnamon .
I love cinnamon .
Um It's great for you and it tastes delicious .
So we're gonna Sprinkle a little bit of that on .
Get that cinnamon in there .
And then again , I use the wrong hand and we're gonna mix it up .
So we're mixing , we're mixing , we're mixing and this one also gets a little sticky .
So that can be fun or messy .
Depends on how you want to think about it and we'll do our little taste test .
Oh , that's great .
Cinnamon and honey looks like the best thing ever .
I think this one's my favorite just because I tend to have a little bit more of a sweet tooth and I thought my mouth full because I'm really rude .
They're all great options .
It just depends on what you like and I'm sure there's someone in your home who would like each of these .
So make sure that you try them out and if you have any requests for flavor combos or any ideas that you think might be really good .
