Interesting popcorn toppings

I'm looking for some interesting toppings for popcorn to serve at a party. I love to make popcorn with brown butter, minced fresh rosemary, salt, and Parmesan. Yum.

I'd love some more ideas.

  1. Here are some suggestions:
    -Sugar and cinnamon
    -Ranch : the bag of dry ranch seasoning
    -apple pie spice
    -melted white chocolate chips drizzled over hot buttered and salted popcorn
    -garlic powder, parmesan cheese, and chili powder

    Hope this helps.

    1. I second ranch. It's great.

      There's a grill spice blend available at most grocery stores called "kickn chicken" or something to that effect, and it's AWESOME on popcorn.

      I also like to melt a glob of nutella with some butter and pour it over popcorn for a sweet option.

      Have you ever added nutritional yeast (available in the bulk foods section of Kroger or Fred Meyer or any health food store) to the top> Adds a nutty quality that is magnificent.

      1. CHOW has a number of flavoring options; click on the recipes link at top of page, type popcorn into search and lots of ideas "pop" up. Bacon-cheddar, curry-coconut or cocoa-cayenne popcorn, anyone?
        How about Frenchified popcorn, fresh garlic, herbs de Provence and celery salt?

        1. drizzled with reduced balsamic vinegar and freshly ground black pepper

          cumin, coriander, garam masala, dash of chile or cayenne, butter

          diced roasted shallots, roasted garlic, olive oil, and fennel seeds

          cocoa powder, cinnamon, espresso powder

          search the board... there was another good thread a while back.

          1. I love the combo of black truffle oil, microplane-grated extra sharp white cheddar, and freshly ground black pepper. Shamelessly copied the folks over at 479 Popcorn for the truffle/cheddar idea.
