I will start by saying that this Cheddar Powder is amazingly delicious. The flavor combo of the powder and seasonings is also really tasty. However, I agree with Edith. This recipe is not good, and I wouldn't recommend following it. Not sure how Gale Gand does it, but for me, it was a separated, broken mess when the powder and seasonings were combined with the melted butter. I tried to add more melted butter in an attempt to smooth it out, but that did not work. It was a gloppy mess, and did not distribute into the popcorn anything close to evenly. Next time, I will also try combining the dry seasonings, butter the popcorn, then toss in the dry ingredients.

I enjoy this recipe; it's an easy way to flavor up popcorn when you want something different, or a quick appetizer to impress friends.

I do make one change, however. Mixing the powdered spices into the butter makes a thick paste that doesn't distribute well over the popcorn. So I toss the hot popcorn with the spices, then drizzle the butter over it and toss it again. Keeps it from turning into gloppy clumps of seasoning that way.
