Agreed with the reviewers below – the Cheddar powder is excellent, the flavor profile was good, but the actual technique described below delivers gloppy, icky, messy (but tasty), popcorn. I had the best results with mixing the cheese and seasonings (I added onion powder), buttering the popcorn, then sprinkling the seasonings on the buttered popcorn and tossing. And this is enough seasoning for more popped corn than shown. Maybe 6 cups? In my last batch, I swapped out the cayenne in favor of a sprinkle of aleppo peppers. Delicious!

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.
