  1. My daughter and I adore popcorn – usually reserving the flavored kind for the holidays – and your festive version sounds heavenly! Love the maple gingerbread combo!

  2. Needed gifts to take along to our last Christmas event tomorrow. Found this recipe and just completed 7 batches. It’s super delicious…and looks wonderful too! I enclosed a copy of the recipe with each gallon bag of popcorn!

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know, Brenda. Wow, 7 batches! Great idea to use gallon bags and include the recipe.

  3. Yum. Looks so good. Found you over at Grow your Blog. I’m your newest follower. I’m so going to make this tonight…we are going on a Christmas tree festival tour.

    1. You’ll love this popcorn, Dana. And I agree – washing that extra pan when I use coconut oil is annoying, so I like to avoid it whenever possible.

  4. Ooooh! I love this. Last year I did popcorn for Christmas gifts, but it wasn’t this healthy. This looks great and delicious!
