Maple Pumpkin Spiced Popcorn

When I was a little girl (about a million years ago) we made popcorn on the cook top. It was delicious salted buttered goodness. Perfectly wonderful in it’s simplicity! But with fall in the air…(ok I am lying, fall is no where near the air in Southern California but I hear of mythical places where the leaves turn colors and temperatures cool down) I bring you Maple Pumpkin Spiced Popcorn! (This post contains affiliate links, see disclosure at bottom of page)

Maple Pumpkin Spiced Popcorn



The  combination of popcorn, maple syrup and pumpkin spice made my house smell heavenly…

  2. If your pot does not have a long handle you will need oven mitts to shake safely.

When kernels pop, pour ⅓ cup of kernels into the oil, replace the lid and shake pot continuously till kernels are done popping. Immediately remove from heat.
