At the end of a long day, a bowl of flavored popcorn can be one of the best, simplest treats to reward yourself with for a hard day’s work or just a busy day in general. It’s a great snack for any occasion, and most movie nights just aren’t complete without it. While classic butter flavored popcorn is always a sound, reliable route to take, consider adding a few other ingredients to make the treat and the evening a little more festive. This milk and Manuka honey popcorn recipe is a great introduction to flavor combinations, and it’s doubtful you will regret this worthy leap of faith. So, without further adieu, let’s get started on making that recipe!
