Flavoured Popcorn

We have just spent a very busy Anzac long weekend with family and friends camping on the farm. I found that popcorn was an easy snack that most people especially children love but my Granddaughter wants lashings of butter and no sugar on hers whereas my Grandson loves loads of sugar on his. It is easy to buy plain bags of corn kernels ready to microwave and then add your flavours.
4 100g pkts popcorn
40g butter
1 tsp salt

20g butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs icing sugar

20g butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon

20 g butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
Individually place the packets of popcorn in the microwave and heat for 1 to 2 minutes until corn stops popping. Place the popcorn in 4 bowls.
I put the butter into shot glasses and melt it by placing it in the microwave for 5 seconds.
Add the flavours to each shot glass of melted butter allowing the salt and sugar to melt and the cinnamon and chilli flakes to distill for a few minutes then pour over each bowl.
Label and serve.

Popping corn can be used.
1 Tbs vegetable oil
120g popping corn
Heat the oil in a large saucepan with a lid. Add the popping corn and close the lid. Cook over a high heat, shaking the pan occasionally, for 5 minutes until the corn has stopped popping. Remove from the heat.
Flavour as required.
