Popcorn with Coconut Oil and Honey

I've always loved popcorn. Popcorn's great because you can make it so many different ways: classic with salt and butter, sweet like caramel and kettle corn, savory like cheese, or even birthday cake flavored like I discovered this weekend! But my most favorite way to have popcorn is homemade with coconut oil and honey. I've even convinced non-popcorn eaters (Jordan) to love popcorn this way, so it's definitely worth a try.

1/3 cup unpopped popcorn
1 tablespoon butter
1 - 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
A drizzle of honey
Salt to taste

I have an old fashioned air popper that I use to pop my popcorn, but you can also use a brown paper bag in the microwave by simply pouring some popcorn into the paper bag, folding the end to secure it, and microwaving for a couple of minutes or until you stop hearing popping for 3 - 5 seconds. If you choose to use a paper bag and the microwave, only pop about half the popcorn at a time - remember it grows!

After you pop your corn, melt the butter, coconut oil, and honey together in the microwave. Make sure to stir it because the honey will settle on the bottom. Pour the oil mixture over the popcorn in small portions, salting and stirring until the popcorn is evenly coated to your taste.

I shall try this with my air popper. I have never put honey in my popcorn.
