Today's post is all about POPCORN! Popcorn is one of my very favorite snacks and I want you to know it's not just for the movies! Each night this week AJ and I have made a different popcorn creation. These were not only fun to make, semi-healthy, and easy, they were delicious too.
AJ got me an air popper for Christmas this past year and while I really like it, sometimes I don't feel like dragging the whole thing out and everything. I've recently gotten pretty grossed out by microwave popcorn (chemicals and grease and burning smell oh my) so my go to is SkinnyPop. 100 calories of this stuff equates to a pretty big helping and it tastes fresh and so yummy. I love all their delicious flavors.
|A Costco purchase you must make|
You can buy a regular sized bag or if you're addicted like me, a Costco sized bag OR 100 calorie mini bags (actually not so mini). Easy peasy.
Ok....time for the creations:
1. Peanut Butter/Dark Chocolate M&M: I melted about 2 tbs. of crunchy peanut butter in the microwave, drizzled it on top, and added some dark chocolate spring colored M&M's. Protein packed and so so good.
2. Caramel Apple Cinnamon: By far one of my faves. I added granny smith apple chips, caramel chocolate chips, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. A twist on a caramel apple that I will definitely be enjoying again.
