Black Truffle Parmesan Popcorn Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Every once in a while, I get the midnight munchies. And because we generally don't keep many snack items around our house, I'm 'forced' to make something for myself. Fortunately, we always have a good supply of corn kernels for popping in our stove top popper - and an assortment of fun ingredients to flavor it with.

This particular instance, I found some black truffle butter hidden in the back of our fridge and I was instantly inspired. For some reason, black truffle and parmesan was all I could think of! So I bust out our stove popper and added the truffle butter until it was completely melted.

After that, it's time to get popping! Our popper is done with a hand crank, so you have to keep an eye on the kernels to make sure they don't burn once they start popping. After about three minutes, you'll have a full popper of popcorn. Remember, even a fourth cup of kernels can go a long way!

Once the popcorn was popped but still hot, I generously topped my popcorn with grated Parmesan cheese and some parsley for a hint of color. Of course, I ended up eating the popcorn in the dark in front of my TV as I admittedly watched trashy reality shows late into the night.

  1. Melt the butter in a stove-top popper over medium low heat. Add the corn kernels and increase the heat to medium. Crank or stir the kernels occasionally, until they start popping.
  2. Continuously crank the popper while the kernels are still popping. When the popper goes longer than 3 seconds without hearing a *pop* the popcorn is done.
  3. Sprinkle the parmesan and parsley over the popcorn as desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
