Maple Glazed Popcorn

Monday, January 14, 2013

I'm a true believer in making everyday special. Yet some days, like Mondays, are hard to get excited about.

So to make this Monday a little sweeter we are having a popcorn and movie night. Bootleg version of Argo, and this maple glazed popcorn. Sweet and salty always does the trick. Plus, making your own popcorn feels a little more festive than say, opening a bag of chips.

So here's to Monday, the start of a new week, let's make it a sweet one.

1 cup popcorn kernels (or 6 cups popped popcorn)
3 tablespoons butter, separated
1/3 cup maple syrup 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
sea salt (kosher is fine too) 

In a large, heavy bottomed pot, over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Pour in popcorn kernals. Cover pot with lid and occasionally shake to move kernals around and prevent burning. When popping slows remove from stove top and set aside. 

Meanwhile in a small saucepan over medium high heat, melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Once butter is melted add in maple syrup. Stir to combine and heat syrup through. Take off heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over popcorn and quickly toss to coat. Add salt and combine. Allow to cool before eating.
