Ranch Popcorn & Vanilla Popcorn

From: Rochelle

Last night we had some friends over for games. I made two kinds of popcorn and both were a hit! I really liked the Ranch Popcorn. I also made Vanilla Popcorn and I have included the recipe on the bottom but I forgot to take a picture. The nice thing about popcorn is it is a whole grain, filling, and a nice snack when you have the munchies!

Ranch Popcorn

1/4 t Onion Powder
1/4 t Garlic Powder
1/4 t Dried Dill
1/2 t Chives
1/8 t Salt
1/8 t Ground Black Pepper
1-2 T Olive Oil
1/2 C of Popcorn Kernels- air popped

*If you feel like you need more flavor in your popcorn (like I wanted), just add a little bit more of each herb, and perhaps more salt. If you add more olive oil too, it makes it coat further.

In a small bowl combine everything but the popped popcorn. Mix thoroughly. Drizzle over popped popcorn. Using two spoons, toss the popcorn until evenly coated. 

Vanilla Popcorn

1/2 C Popcorn Kernels- popped (Can use more popcorn if you don't want it AS coated. It would taste just fine.)
1/2 C White Sugar
1/2 C Smart Balance Butter
2 T Corn Syrup
1/4 t Baking Soda
1 t Vanilla 
*Chopped nuts--optional 

In a sauce pan, combine sugar, butter, corn syrup, and baking soda and boil for about 2 minutes on medium heat--stirring frequently. Stir in the vanilla and pour the hot liquid over the popped popcorn. Using two spoons, toss the popcorn until evenly coated. If you want nuts, add them at this point. Serve!
