I am so excited to introduce you to a friend of mine, Heather Lynne, from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks. Today she is sharing what promises to be an amazing and simple recipe that I really can’t wait to try. Have you ever bought White Cheddar Popcorn? I love that stuff. Heather’s recipe has a twist which sounds amazing. White Cheddar Ranch Popcorn will most likely be my new favorite snack. Thanks so much for sharing with us Heather. Be sure to check her site out!
Hi! I’m Heather Lynne, the author of Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks, and I’m happy to be sharing a quick and fun recipe on Fearlessly Creative Mommas.
Do you have a favorite snack? Or a snack that you can’t say no too? I do. That snack is homemade buttered popcorn. I don’t know what it is about popcorn but I love it. I can eat it with just a little butter and salt but I also love flavored popcorn. Recently I’ve been on a flavored popcorn kick. I like how easy they are to make and there are a zillion combinations out there to try!
I’ve had a lot of friends telling me about nutritional yeast. Have you heard of it? It’s supposed to taste like cheddar cheese. I was extremely skeptical of this but I went ahead and bought some on Amazon because I needed a few more dollars to get the free shipping. Since I was unsure of the flavor of the nutritional yeast I went ahead and added some ranch powder to the popcorn as well.
Let me just tell you, YUM! It tasted just like cheddar ranch popcorn. It was totally delicious and so easy to make with just 5 ingredients. If you don’t have any nutritional yeast on hand you can leave it out and just have ranch popcorn instead.
- 8 c. popped popcorn
- 4 T. butter, melted
- 2 T. nutritional yeast
- 2 t. salt
- 2 T. ranch powder
- Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Pour the melted butter over top and toss to coat.
- Combine the nutritional yeast, salt, and ranch powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle over top of popcorn and toss to coat.
- Serve immediately.
