Apple Pie Popcorn Snack Mix

We recently purchased our very first popcorn popper!  We'd been using the "brown bag in the microwave" method (or a dish) for so many years, my kids didn't even know there was any other way to make popcorn.  The problem was that we would only make popcorn when friends were over, so we'd end up making 4-5 bags worth, and it took so long! Our new popper is such a novelty. Whenever kids have friends over, I can hear them say, "Want to see our popcorn popper!" apple pie snack mix

Popcorn is a healthy snack for kids!  It's 100% whole grain. It's high in antioxidants, high in fiber, and low in calories.

Anyway, we've been eating a lot of it, and so we decided to try different toppings and seasonings.  This one is a keeper! We call it Apple Pie Popcorn.

LOVE popcorn! I'm usually a purist when it comes to popcorn and just a little butter and salt is perfect for me, but, when I want something a little different, some freshly grated Parmesan on top gives it a great flavor hit. A little goes a long way too.

Good idea to go with a machine if you like to make a lot of popcorn. It's the healthiest way to go. Your recipe sounds really delicious.

How unique and delicious this looks. I have been trying to eat healthier and provide my family with healthier options and found this <a href="" rel="nofollow">healthy way to prepare chips</a> and oh how I love chips. I add herbs and some sea salt and they are tasty.

Maybe I'll have to invest in a popper. I do the microwave paper bag thing, but the yield isn't great! We end up re-popping after the first round since there are so many unpopped kernels.
