This Cranberry Macadamia Nut Popcorn is a delicious treat made perfect for this upcoming Holiday Season. Popcorn with the perfect Classic Holiday taste. Cranberries, nuts, chocolate, cinnamon oh yum! One of the fondest memories I have from when I was a little girl is stringing popcorn with my whole family to hang on the Christmas tree. Popcorn has always been a classic Holiday treat (and decor) in my family. I’ve always been a huge fan of eating popcorn as a snack all year round. When whipping up a batch up popcorn this week I decided to kick it up a notch and toss in some macadamia nuts (my daughters favorite), cranberries and some white chocolate with a sprinkle of cinnamon. This particular popcorn mixture puts an extra exciting twist on the average taste of popcorn!
Cranberry Macadamia Nut Popcorn
The way this recipe all flows together is like a wonderful burst of flavor in your mouth. The taste of the cranberry from the craisins used reminds me so much of the Holiday season, as cranberries are a classic Holiday fruit and I will admit are quite tasty. This Cranberry Macadamia Nut Popcorn provides so many different flavors; it’s no doubt that you will LOVE it, along with your whole family and all of your guests at your upcoming Holiday parties and events. I personally love how the chocolate provides the sweetness, popcorn the salty, cinnamon provides spice, and the craisins provide that fresh fruit flavor! This popcorn would be a great gift too. You can make up a huge batch and toss some in small containers and give as gifts. Giving this will be a nice change from always getting cookies for Christmas.
