Caramel-Masala Popcorn and Pistachios from 'Salty Snacks'

Kate Williams Post a comment

Salted caramel corn is one of those magical snacks that manages to taste better and better the more bites you take. (That is, until you've eaten a huge bowl and suddenly realize you've got yourself a major stomach ache.) It's got salt and sweetness, it's got bitter notes from the caramel, and it's got crunchy-airy corn kernels to anchor all that goodness. In Salty Snacks, Cynthia Nims takes this seemingly perfect treat to the next level with warming garam masala and rich pistachios. More

10 Fun Toppings for Popcorn

Erin Zimmer 60 comments

Adding superfluous amounts of salt and butter to popcorn is never a bad idea but we had fun with more out-there toppings. Lemongrass popcorn? Cool Ranch popcorn? A Japanese twist with furikake? Some other ideas for flavorings are hiding in packaged ramen and the blue-box mac and cheese—those little pouches of super salty powder make for an insta-topper. More
