Sea Salt Honey Butter Popcorn

I'm not really a popcorn junkie.
When I go to the movies, I'd rather have a box of Dots or Twizzlers than a big ol bag of buttery popcorn.

But every now and again, I get a major craving for it and when I do, watch out!
I probably really the most unladylike popcorn eating girl on the planet.
I shovel it in.  And I mean in the worst possible way.  Like if i don't get this popped corn in my belly this nanosecond I'm going to combust way of shoveling it in.

So last night, I was going thru my pinterest board "let's eat" looking for something to bake actually, when I stumbled across a recipe for sea salt honey butter popcorn.

I decided that instead of just pouring the sea salt honey butter on top of microwave popcorn, I would do it the old fashion way and cook it on the stove.  I followed cookie & kate's instructions on popping the corn on the stove (Michael likes to make it this way too but he was busy with homework and I didn't want to bother him).

After the oil got good and hot, I threw in the kernels and waited for this to happen

mmm....popped kernels!

Then after it was all popped, I separated it b/c I knew that Michael probably wasn't going to want the fancy butter.  So I pretty much did 1 T. of melted butter with 1 T. of heated up honey (to make it thinner), mixed it up, poured it on the popcorn and tossed on some salt.

Needless to say, I was shoveling it in!
This is some really good stuff.  Has the sweetness of kettle corn but it's different if that makes any sense.  This is definitely some popcorn that I would make again.

So yummy & sticky good!
