Sometimes you are just sitting there watching tv and you realize you just want something. Not that you are hungry but you are also not content. You just want a snack. It’s so easy to grab a bag of popcorn and throw it in the microwave for a few minutes which is a great healthy snack. But why not jazz it up a little bit like this Buffalo Popcorn? (I mean, don’t we seem to be adding buffalo sauce to just about everything these days?)
Butter, hot sauce and honey are melted together and poured slowly over warm, fresh popped popcorn (either bagged microwave popcorn or corn kernels will work) before being tossed slightly until slightly sticky, slighty sweet and slightly spicy. I used Frank’s Buffalo Sauce in place of regular hot sauce just because I had it on hand so use whatever your favorite hot sauce is that you have around. The buffalo-butter sauce softens up this popcorn a bit, making it gooey and the honey gives it that sweetness you get from kettle corn. Once you get this sauce on your fingers, there’s no point in licking it off; just dig right in for another handful. This popcorn won’t make it through a whole movie so you might want to make a couple batches.
In small pan, melt butter; whisk in hot sauce, honey and 12 tsp. salt.Place popcorn in large bowl. Drizzle with butter mixture; toss and season.
