Red Carpet Popcorn

I love art. I consider many things to be art. Movies, fashion, acting, painting, architecture, eating, cooking and much more. Tonight is one of my favorite nights because it is the Academy Awards! This means I have a night filled with a few of my favorite things fashion, movies, family and food! 

This red carpet inspired popcorn is great to munch on while watching the awards show. The red comes from the spicy, metabolism-boosting cayenne pepper. After making homemade popcorn you will never go back to that processed bagged corn again! So sit back relax, munch and enjoy the show! 

3 tbs. olive oil
1⁄2 cup popping corn
kosher salt to taste
cayenne pepper to taste 

Add the oil and popping corn to a large heavy bottom saucepan. Cover the pan and put on medium heat. When the popping starts to slow down, remove the pan from the heat and pour the popcorn into a large serving bowl. Add salt and desired toppings like cayenne pepper for a spicy kick! 

Variations to add after the popcorn is made:

  • butter
  • truffle salt
  • melted chocolate 
  • sugar
  • cinnamon 
  • carmel 
  • herbs
  • parmesan cheese
  • bacon 
  • chopped nuts

Happy Eatings!
