Happy 4th of July! Garlic Popcorn with Cayenne Pepper

It is always a good idea to pop a bunch of corn when watching a movie with friends, the games or even all alone with your book. Adding some salt and butter is never a bad idea but, let’s get creative for a change.

    I adore popcorn. We will be going to Silver Dollar City in August. They have all of this old-fashioned food from the Ozark Mountains….hillbilly food. One of my favorite things to get are the huge bags of Kettle Corn. I walk all around the park while the kids and my husband go on the rides…so happy with my kettle corn!!

    I'm going to try this tonight or this weekend!! I think I still have a bottle of Frank's Red Hot sauce in pantry and this is for my husband. I can't wait to try the Cayenne pepper one. Garlic popcorn sounds FAR better than regular kind. Oohh this week's movie night is going to be extra fun thanks for your creative recipe! THANK YOU!

    just tried this and the flavor was great! Didn't know simply mixing garlic and cayenne can really dress up regular popcorn. This is a keeper!
