Maple Butter Spiced Popcorn

We have started to have movie night every Friday with the boys. I generally make a batch of popcorn to share. A couple weeks ago I think Finding Joy in my Kitchen posted this on her Friday Favorites...and so I saved it! It sounded PERFECT!

Maple Butter Spiced Popcorn-shared from The Kitchn
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger (omitted)
dash of nutmeg (omitted)
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt (opitonal)

Pop popcorn by preferred style. I use my whirly pop.

Melt butter. Whisk in syrup. Combine spices and salt. Drizzle butter over hot popcorn sprinkle spices over top and shake. I ended up doing this in a couple times. Enjoy!

**I decided to leave the extra spices out as I wasn't sure how the boys would like it. In some recipes I also find that nugmeg over powers the dish so I went with just the cinnamon. Let's just say this was a very delicious treat! YUM! It was the perfect sweet/salty combination and easy to make!
