Sweet and salty, rich and buttery, fragrant with freshly popped popcorn—this ice cream is an easy choice for movie night.
'caramel corn' on Serious Eats
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.
Stinky, zingy cheeses love sweet stuff—honey, fruit, preserves, and the like but before coming across this recipe for Blue Cheese and Spiced Nutty Corn from Bluestem, we never would have dreamed of giving popcorn a place in the cheese course.
