Whether at the movies or watching films at home, we always love to munch on popcorn. The pop-able treat is easy to make and an essential part of any movie night. But instead of the traditional butter topping, try adding in some Cheddar cheese. Not only does it add a great zing of flavor, but it’s something that the kids can have a blast making.
So, you could grate some Cheddar cheese over the top of popped corn and you’ll have Cheddar cheese popcorn, but the cheese might become a big gooey mess — and there is a much easier way. It starts with incorporating Cheddar cheese powder into the butter and drizzling that over the popcorn. Genius!
Mix one cup of popped popcorn kernels with a half a cup of Cheddar cheese powder and about one stick of melted butter. Mix in some salt and stir to combine all the ingredients. Grab a bowl and nestle onto the couch with a good flick. This is one treat you might not even want to share!
