If you're into eating sweet, salty and ridiculously sticky deliciousness, I have the perfect recipe for you. Bonus: It's barely even a recipe because the hardest part is pressing the "popcorn" button on the microwave and washing your hands afterward.
-A bag of lightly salted popcorn (I went with the no-butter variety)
-Mixed nuts (I avoided peanuts because they're like the peasants of the nut hierarchy)
-Dried cranberries (Extra points if you got them at a hipster super market like the Berkeley Bowl)
-Honey or agave nectar (Or both if you're me)
-Pumpkin pie spice (There isn't actually any pumpkin in this recipe. Is that deceiving?)
-Ground cinnamon (I felt like there needed to be a parenthetical next to each ingredient)
Here's what to do:
First pop the popcorn and throw it in a bowl. Squeeze honey/agave nectar into a bowl (how much depends on how sticky/sweet you want it to be, I probably used 4 tablespoons) and stick in the microwave for 30ish seconds so it's nice and runny. Combine the nuts, cranberries and popcorn and drizzle the sweet stuff over it, tossing to distribute evenly and sprinkle with copious amounts of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. I then stuck it in the freezer for about 15 minutes to make it slightly less sticky, but then I just embraced the stickiness because it was delicious.
That's all there is to it. Oh, and if you've been looking for new(ish) music feel free to creep on this playlist that I've been adding to quite a bit lately. It's not cohesive but it makes me happy. Enjoy.
