As a follow-up to yesterday’s post on how to pop perfect popcorn, I thought a delicious recipe for Gingersnap Popcorn would be just what you were looking for. Mmmm… when making this your house will smell all warm and lovey. There is just something about the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger that warms the soul.
Let’s put it this way, this popcorn is the offspring of Kettle Corn and Fall. YUM!
