Popcorn — it's addictive, satisfying, and a must-have for any movie-watching night. Whether eaten delicately kernel by kernel or devoured by the handful, popcorn is something that never gets old. But sometimes, one can't help but wonder if there is something more out there. Sure, there's nothing wrong with hot popcorn coated with real melted butter, but there are many other ways to dress up popcorn.

Take, for instance, this Popcorn with Sriracha Butter and Parmesan. Sriracha, if you've never had it, is a popular condiment often served with Chinese and Southeast Asian dishes that's all at once spicy, tart, and ever so slightly sweet. Together with freshly grated Parmesan, it's absolutely dynamite.

Or, if sweet and salty is more to your liking, don't miss out on this fantastic Posh Caramel Corn Recipe, which attempts to replicate Harry and David's popular Moose Munch snack. It makes for a perfect gift, but we won't judge you if you keep it all to yourself.

And coffee lovers will want to try this inspired Kahlúa and Espresso Bean Caramel Corn Recipe, which will keep anyone hopping up and down all throughout their favorite flick. For more recipes and ideas, be sure to check out our slideshow.
