Simplified Saturday: healthy snacks for movie nights  

Who doesn’t love popcorn? And now that cold weather is closing in, popcorn and staying in seem to go hand-in-hand.

Now that the weather is getting colder, we are choosing to stay home and in the heat. We love snuggling up in our living room with our favorite healthy snacks and some comfy blankets.

We love popcorn at our house, and while we love popcorn with just butter and salt, we decided to be a little creative.

I decided it might add a little extra element of fun if we made our own tasty flavored popcorn. We used the Skinny Pop microwave popcorn and a number of spices and ingredients we already had on hand.

We definitely have a sweet tooth around here, so we used a little cocoa powder and some sugar free maple syrup. We were out of marshmallows, but would have added them for a “maple smores popcorn.” Still, our chocolate maple popcorn tasted like fall and it was wonderful.

We also decided to create a popcorn flavor inspired by one of our favorite tasty treats: pizza.

We added parmesan cheese and garlic salt to our popcorn. It tasted great, and we ate all of it!

Of course, if you’re not interested in making your own popcorn flavors, Skinny Pop makes popcorn cakes and mini popcorn cakes in three flavors: sharp cheddar, maple and brown sugar and white cheddar. They are fantastic and we eat them all the time.

Even tiny snackers love the sweet maple brown sugar popcorn cakes.
