I don’t know about you but with holiday break so close, I’m getting ready to curl up on the couch under a big blanket, with one hand on the TV remote and one hand in a popcorn bowl. And I don’t mean any plain ol’ popcorn either. We’re talking my absolute favorite – truffle popcorn! (If you need to know anything about me, it’s that I’m obsessed with anything truffle.)
Warning: If you have a roommate or significant other around, you may want to make two batches so you don’t have to share!
That being said, I give you the deliciousness that is truffle popcorn for your eating pleasure.
- 1 cup popcorn kernels (or 1 bag of plain microwavable popcorn)
- 3 tablespoons oil (vegetable oil works just fine)
- 3 tablespoons sea salt
- 3 tablespoons truffle oil
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
You can make the popcorn the old fashioned way in a large covered pot/popcorn maker, or just do what I did and buy it in the microwavable bag. If you’re doing it the old fashioned way, pour in kernels and vegetable oil and wait for the popping. It should be done in about 6-ish minutes. Otherwise, microwave the bag according to its instructions. When finished, transfer it all to your popcorn bowl and thoroughly mix in the salt, truffle oil and butter.
*If you also happen to be a bacon fanatic, you can cook and finely chop some bacon and sprinkle it in for added flavor. Don’t worry, you still have two weeks before that diet begins…
