I Got Treats – Honey Butter Popcorn

Simply pop a batch of corn (I popped about 2/3 a cup of kernels). While it cools in a big bowl, melt half a stick of butter down with 2-3 spoonfuls of honey (it depends on your sweet tooth). Add a generous amount of salt and a splash of vanilla (optional, but it adds a great aroma). Let the honey butter mixture come to a foaming boil, stirring constantly. Once it has reached the boiling point, remove the pot from the heat and drizzle it over the popcorn, tossing the corn with a long-handled spoon as you pour.

made this last night and damn was it tasty! gives it a nice sweet and salty coating but not crazy sweet or cloying like the holiday popcorn you get in those big tins.
